Detected threats all of a sudden after years

Hi all,

my ESET antivirus hasn't found a threat in 6 years. Suddenly, today it found 15+ threats, most of which are either trojans or adware. Also, I have to mention 2 things. 1) It is not active (I mean, I bought a 1-year sub about 10 years ago when I bought the pc) 2) It's not the first time there have been viruses in my pc. It happens 1-2 times every year but I usually detect them with MWbytes, Spyhunter, Roguekiller etc. and they usually are malware.

Is this something I should look into more in depth and why do you think this program started detecting all of a sudden?

Thanks in advance!

*Most of those files (not all) are from zoek_backup folder. If anyone doesn't know zoek is a program for malware etc.


First time poster so correct me if I have done anything wrong.
