I need help figuring out if I am infected or if Kaspersky was just alerting me to the danger.  I was deleting junk email (not even looking at them) last week and Outlook got hung up 3 times.  I didn’t event think about it being a malicious issue as I wasn’t opening anything.  Jumped on my iPhone, deleted the junk no issue.  Now yesterday I do to open Kaspersky and it is telling me about these issues. 

 

I have deleted temp files, ran a full scan, ran Kaspersky virus tool, and ran Malwarebytes and nothing was found. So do I have something or is Kaspersky just telling me it saw the issue in the email?  It is not really clear. 

 

Thanks so much for any help!!

? Infected or Not ? :
If nothing was found then your system is clean and you can ignore the detection notification. 

Also, please clear your Reports , update Data Bases and run a scan as follows :
> Settings > Additional > Threats and Exlusions settings > Type of detected objects
> Detect other software that can be used by criminals to damage your computer or personal data
