Mal/Generic-S in Temp folder


since this morning, every time I restart the PC, I get the message that there is an executable in the Temp folder that was detected as malware. The first time it could not be removed, but when I checked it was no longer there anyway. The other times it said it could remove the threat successfully.

The detections are Mal/Generic-S.
They are found in the Windows temp directory and look like this (the names change every time):


A full scan of the system after removal has revealed no additional threats.

Should I be concerned?
