I would suggest to scan the system with Symantec power eraser to detect threat and remove them

It might be your assumption only 1 file is suspicious but there can be multiple

You should run the Symhelp tool to find out suspicious files available on the System.

Symantec Help (SymHelp):

Submit all those suspicious files to the Symnatec at the following id

You would receive tracking id, you can PM me the tracking id.

Update the system with latest windows patches & Service pack, update all third party application.

Make sure all the SEP features are installed & having most current definitions. (Virus & Spyware /PTP/NTP)

Always follow the best practice:

"Thumbs up" to the good advice, above. 

This new article may be of interest- if you see one suspicious, undetected file, there may be more.  Your SEPM can help you find them.
