That's fine as they were already quarantined.
Let me know if there are any other problems/questions and if ot, I'll send instructions to tidy up.

Your computer appears to be clean. Now that it seems to be running well, please follow these steps to tidy up and decrease the likelihood of getting infected again:
- right-click on FRST.exe/FRST64.exe and select Rename
- rename the file to Uninstall.exe
- double-click on Uninstall.exe – this will uninstall FRST
Uninstall remaining programmes
To check for any leftover installed tools press the Windows Key + R at the same time, then type appwiz.cpl then Enter.
You can uninstall Eset or any programmes we used that still remain:
You can also delete all other logs and programmes we’ve used that are on your desktop. Just click on them and press Delete.
Update and run Malwarebytes. This really is an excellent program that you should update and run on a regular basis, probably weekly.
I also recommend that you read the following:
