I have started seeing a file called pcwdbg in the main directory of my hard drive.

What is this file and is there something wrong with my system?

Remove "Hide extensions" tick in Folder Options / View.
If you can see the extension you are better able to decide.
And then you may avoid clicking "open" on rogue .exe files.
