Accepted Answer

  1. There may be another file somewhere else that keeps installing it on your computer. Because this file isn't a virus/trojan your antivirus program isn't picking it up. Next time you delete it check your processes in your windows task manager and see if there is something running along the same name as the trojan. (perhaps it is installed when deleted, or perhaps its a site that you're going to that keeps installing it.) i would also recommend maybe trying another virus program, if none of the above works.

  1. uhhh... what downloader? Windows what?

    You might want to run a scan with Malwarebytes or Avast. They should be able to detect the malware and remove it.
