Is there anything Zotero can do about this?
  • That's a webpage snapshot that was saved with some item.

    You can post the ID from that file path (HV64KADR) into the Zotero search bar to see which item it is.

    Then you can either delete the attached item entirely from within Zotero (then empty the trash), or right-click -> Show File to open the directory and check out the files directly.
  • Thank you very much. I've expelled the nastie! And my computer is clean again. Thank you for your prompt help.
    Zotero is too good a programme to abandon.
  • As is your browser I take it. It was your browser that got you to that trojan, not Zotero.
