Trojan.FakeAlert will hijack the desktop background with an image alerting the user that their computer system has been infected with spyware. It also changes some settings of windows which include:- disabling permissions for the user to change the background image and setting the active desktop to 'show web content'. It is usually installed in conjunction with a rogue anti-spyware application.

Troj/BkFraud-A attempts to deceive users into revealing personal banking information.
I agree. Better to err on the side of caution even if the infected files appear to be old.
It would be wise to check your bank and credit card statements for any unknown purchases. It would probably also be wise to contact your credit card provider and bank. Change all online passwords from a known clean computer.
That sounds plausable. It is not unusual for updated anti-virus definitions to find items that were missed by a previous scan which used older definitions.
I am puzzled as I think it is unlikely that the two "Trojan.FakeAlert" registry entries flagged by Malwarebyte would be the only changes to my system from an attack. I think the Kaspersky online detection of “Trojan-Spy.HTML.Paylap.ev” on the old backup archive Outlook (.pst) files have probably been there since the backups were created in August.
