Hi Arkon,
One of the corrupted files is the Trusted Installer, just not enough info on the rest.

This file is a target for malware, as it controls the permissions for ALL downloads

I would run Malwarebytes, uncheck the trial, but enable the Rootkit detection in the dashboard, then run ESET online scan, dissable your current AV.
