I am a new computer user. Webroot SecureAnywhere detected a threat. The following threat was detected and quarantined: syncfusion.pdf win rt.dll in c: programfileswindowsappsa6783f7c.alarmclock_23.81.15_neutral_78bh77839s0easyncfusion.pdf winrt.dll
Could anyone help me to understand what this means? Do I need to be concerned about the security of the computer?
Is it best to leave the item in quarantine?
How did this happen so I can avoid it in the future? Thank you!

My feeling is that it may be a false positive, and you could also Submit file for analysis
And here is info about managing quarantined items
Please let us know if you have any questions. Thanks.
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
To add to
if the files are quarantined then there is NO WAY that they can harm your system; you are perfectly safe to leave them there. However, if there is a build up of such files then at some stage it you should really either delete them permanently from Quarantime or restore them (if you believe that they have been put there in error/due to a false positive detection).
