Tell your antivirus to remove the file.

Keygens are not usually actual viruses, just tools to generate serial numbers you were supposed to pay for.

It doesnt actually mean its a virus / trojan either. Its just a generic name AV programs have for keygens

I found this too and discovered it wasn't a virus so I set my AV to ignore it.

Kids have most likely been pirating software, it wont actuly effect your computer.

Although it might affect your wallet and\or Internet connection if you get caught pirating.
