Hello,
Your machine is clean,

It's a nice looking machine, not even left over entries. Malwarebytes also showed clean except for the 1 item.

Our frst scan however did not like this program in your uninstall list.
Caster

I don't know much about that Caster app some steam app, perhaps you know more.

Don't go around windows an looking for weird files there are a lot of them.

There were no errors concerning kaspersky anti virus, however that does not mean it could not have a glitch or 2 as you indicated.

On a side note, I reinstalled kaspersky, but it looked completely different then it did before I uninstalled it. Thought that was odd because I could not find the same window that I included the pic of before to see if reinstalling fixed the issue, had to read this to figure out they changed the menus etc http://usa.kaspersky...-Total-Security

So since I cannot exactly find the same window to compare/see if the symbols are gone etc I will assume it fixed the issue. Just thought I would update this post on the whole ordeal lol.

You usually get infected because your security settings are too low.

Here are a number of recommendations that will help tighten them, and which will contribute to making you a less likely victim:
