Looking for info on c:\fauxvirus\carny ride.exe

Last Modified: 2016-08-29
During a recent virus scan, I saw Norton was scanning a file called c:\fauxvirus\carny ride.exe. It took no action that I could see, but I do not see that directory on my c: drive (even with hidden files on). A search of the Internet (via google and yahoo) and Experts Exchange returned nothing on "c:\fauxvirus\carny ride.exe" (or variations) in English, nor did a search of Symantec.

Does anyone know anything about "c:\fauxvirus\carny ride.exe"? Is it a danger? Is there a recommended utility I can use to see ALL directories?
