Hi all,
So I decided to use adwcleaner on a whim, and it found a file called END in my C drive. It's a 0kb file and when I open it in Notepad or Notepad++ it shows nothing. It has no file extension, even when I uncheck "show known file extensions". Is it a virus lying in wait or not? The install date is from yesterday so it has to be something new. The only possibility I see is that the file created closest to that time was SWTOR. Is that it? Please help.

Look in the programs and features menu. See if anything has the same installation date. If so, it may have snuck in at the same time.

If it's on the root of C and D, that's not a normal file. You can scan them with malwarebytes, but I would just delete them.
