Spybot consistently getting two threats but folders are empty? [Closed

So I did something stupid and tried to download an emulator from Coolrom without googling whether it was safe first and got myself a package of viruses. I think I got rid of most of them (my Ad-Aware detected and deleted a trojan right away) but I ran Spybot and Malware Bytes anyways and ran Symantec and cleaned everything out with CCleaner after a system restore just in case. Everything seems to be back to normal but Spybot is consistently getting two threats detected. 

First one is Win32.Downloader.gen 
Second one is Conduit.CommunityAlerts which I found the exact folder it was detecting in my Program Files but it's completely empty. 

--- Search result list --- 
Win32.Downloader.gen: [SBI $82F4FAFD] Data (File, nothing done) 
Conduit.CommunityAlerts: [SBI $CD21D057] Class ID (Registry key, fixing failed) 

Anybody know what's going on? I swear if I get rid of this I won't ever attempt to pirate games again...


I don't think Conduit ever had a chance to hijack my browsers since it never appeared on my browsers at all (I have Internet Explorer and Google Chrome). I honestly didn't have any affect from the viruses since I think my hoard of antivirus softwares were so quick to quarantine and delete anything threatening from the file I downloaded but I still want to be sure that it's not affecting anything since for some reason my webcam application turned on by itself this morning...

Hi do you still require assistance ?

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Select additions at the bottom
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please attach both logs generated.
