SuperAntiSpyware found the above as critical Treat
Location C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA\Updatus\Packages000175b

I have NVIDIA Drivers installed and recently updated the drivers, is this a false positive? or should I remove it, seems a bit strange that it would flag this, will run my AV to see if it shows anything.

Here's the Scan Log

I would recommend quarantine and if all goes well delete it after a period of time.
