Unsupported 16-Bit Application

Hi so this is the first time I've had an 'Unsupported 16-Bit Application" error pop up. It happened this morning about 12 hours ago when I turned on my pc.

It says 'The program or feature "\??\C:\Moweyy\AppData\Roaming\ajehhhefsf.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available.

The file name was extremely foreign to me and I panicked at first, thinking it was a virus. I did a full system scan using Windows Defender and nothing showed up. I also tried googling the name of the file and malware scans by others showed that it's status was clean, which is really confusing. Everytime I click 'ok' on the pop-up it pops up again. Does anyone have any clue what this could be caused by?

There is also another file in my Roaming folder named 'aiasfacoafiasksf.vbs', Google seems to say that it's a trojan virus but I don't know why Windows Defender didn't pick anything up. Should I be worried?

Thank you!

    Alright I managed to clear the vbs file but I had to use Boot Deleter as I couldn't take ownership of the file no matter what, and yes I checked I'm the administrator.

    The file ajehhhefsf.exe still stays but it no longer gives the prompt, should I do anything to it?
