Redux: Kaspersky found and desinfected a threat(probably packed in a file, non-active and non-run), but nothing in "Neutralized" tab and it didn't say exactly what kind of threat it was and where

Hello @Rimanah,
Welcome!
Quick scan, scans the following objects by default:
  1. Objects loaded at the startup of the operating system
  2. System memory
  3. Disk boot sectors
  • Quick scan can also be configured, via Advanced Settings
In Additional settings of Quick Scan window, you can specify Quick Scan settings for various file types and Quick Scan optimization settings, and select Quick Scan methods and technologies.
Thanks

So if I would have a program running, that has malicious files inside it's data folder, but those malicious files wouldn;'t be itself able to "escape" the program and cause any harm, would it still be detected by Quick scan? Because I had this game(Garry's mod) running and probably in one of the encypted(non-executable) files was some kind of adware or something that was detected by Kaspersky after that by using Quick scan. After deleting the game with all it's files the detection stopped. The weird thing is, that Kaspersky didn't have anything in the "Reports" or "Quarantine" and also full scans that happened like minutes before starting the game found nothing.

@FLOOD I've already sent it to the Kaspersky Support. I just wanna ask if it's possible or not. Thanks

Also and FYI , please consider this option :

I'm wondering why you've raised another question/topic for issue (same) we're currently assisting with?
Thanks.
