I discovered this file on my desktop when I turned on the computer this morning.

C:Usersmy name hereDesktoppasarela_virtual_OK.jsp_files

I replaced my first name and last initial with "my name here" in the address. There should be a backslash after Users, before Desktop, and after Desktop.

I am essentially computer illiterate, other than knowing how to get online.

Can someone please explain this to me in layman's terms? I don't understand anything technical that I'm seeing about this online. Could it be related to a recent windows update?

Thanks in advance.

For some reason DU formatting isn't letting me include the backslash after Users, before Desktop, and after Desktop.

1. Did you possibly try to 'save' a webpage using your browser at some point?

JSP is a web file format.

If you have a virus program (or at least windows defender) just do a scan on the file, if it's clean but you dunno what it is, just delete it.

2. Thank you!

Yesterday I was trying to save a webpage for something we want to do on a trip to Spain next month. I just ran Windows Defender on it, and it came back clean. I'll just delete it.

Thanks again, mr_lebowski!

Thanks for answering the DUer's question, but there are a couple of guys here that want to talk to you about a rug...

5. If you are not sure about any file, do this...

Create a folder C:what-is-it
Make a note of folder where the questionable file currently exists.
Move the questionable file to C:what-is-it folder

Run the computer in usual mode of use.
If no problems occur after many weeks, you can delete the file
from C:what-is-it folder.
