The file tagged "A0003185.exe found in the System Volume Information" is in a system restore point (used by System Restore) and is not a concern since it is not active. The flash drive disinfector is not malware.
There is nothing here to be concerned about.
Since you've done a couple of scans already, I think we can close this out.


Unless you have purchased Malwarebytes' Anti Malware {MBAM}, you need to un-install it. Go to Control Panel and Add-or-Remove programs.
Look for it and click the line for it. Select Change/Remove to de-install it.
De-install Kaspersky online scan.
OK & Exit out of Control Panel

I see that you are clear of your original issues.
If you have a problem with these steps, or something does not quite work here, do let me know.

The following few steps will remove tools we used; followed by advice on staying safer.


  • Please double-click OTL.exe to run it.
  • Click on the CleanUp! button. When you do this a text file named cleanup.txt will be downloaded from the internet. If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTListIt2 attempting to contact the internet you should allow it to do so. After the list has been download you'll be asked if you want to Begin cleanup process? Select Yes.
  • This step removes the files, folders, and shortcuts created by the tools I had you download and run.
  • Run ATF Cleaner, and checkmark "Empty Recycle Bin", click "Empty Selected" and exit the program.  You can delete or keep this utility as you wish.

  • Run Disk Cleanup with the System Restore Cleanup as outlined here by Bert Kinney, MS MVP

  • Configure your Antivirus software to check for updates daily, at a time in which you are sure the computer will be on.
  • Check in at Windows Update and install any Critical Updates offered.

  • Download and Install Windows Defender by Microsoft (free) if you do not already have it:

  • Make certain that Automatic Updates is enabled.

That would help to keep your browser away from known spyware/malware sites.

We are finished here. Best regards.

You are very welcome. One more point: You may rest your Windows Explorer, Folder options/View settings back to the default (where they had been before).

I am marking this thread as completed.  All the best to you.
