  • I would take caution in deleting that since that it is almost ram that eats up a certain space when pc is in use. I would mistake it for a common file and it is easy to slip by. Maybe there is more to expect when it comes to the bigger files as well. You can try using an antivirus to confirm if it is really a malware or you are just panicking. Deleting a certain file could mean harm to your pc and allow more virus to take over rather than protect it in the first place as well.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
