I accidently sent a system file to virus total, and when it was done the file was on my desktop! I have never used virus total before, and i did NOT know how to put it back, or if i was even supposed to. I know it is a Windows installer file named thumbs.db. Virus total says MAGIC LITERAL-CDF doc corrupt can't read, TAGS-msi, root entry. I then did a system restore back to before i sent the file everything was fine, but the file was still on my desktop. I then ran sfc/scannow it said no integrity violations found. I then ran DISM.exe first part scanhealth, and it said no corruption found in the component store. So can i safely delete thumbs.db from my desktop?
