Scan result: Corrupted object

Hello

 

Today my kids used my laptop to copy some colouring pages. When I used the  device later this day, I noticed Kaspersky prevented a few downloads. So the program did its job! I wanted to be 100% sure however, so I did a full scan and Kaspersky didn’t find any threats.

 

When I opened the detailed log I discovered something that worries me a little. In the log I can see 4 events that say ‘object corrupted’.

 

Is this something I should worry about?

 

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Kind regards

Welcome. The first two items: Please do a Windows Disk Cleanup > Cleanup system files > Windows Update cleanup. This should delete the first two objects. 

The other two items: Those are on your factory restore partition, so you can ignore those. 

None of these are related to any downloads nor related to any web surfing.

Welcome. Please post the name of the objects and path/location.

Hello, thanks for your reply. Is this enough information?

Hello

 

I did the Windows Update cleanup, but the corrupted objects still remain. Is there something else I should do?

 

 

Hello

 

I can’t explain how this happened, but I did a second full scan after doing the Cleanup and now all the corrupted objects have disappeared. I did reboot the laptop and removed a program that had a lot of password-protected files.

 

So after the Cleanup, the reboot and the removal of that program my scan report is 100% clean. Thanks for the help, richbuff!

 

Just one more small question: How do I flag my question as ‘solved’?
