How about the system restore using a restore point dated before this happened?

I eliminated the Objects that malware detected. But the message still there, it is just that folder.

Delete the downloaded program, then empty the recycle bin.

Alejandroteen,

I just had a thought. Did you change the location of your C:\Users\(user-name)\Downloads folder location? Do OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the default location of your Downloads folder to see if that may help.

You're most welcome Alejandroteen. You might check to see if you may still have another Downloads folder at wherever you moved it to by mistake to see if your downloads may still be in it.
