I turned on my computer a few days ago and Windows Defender alerted me that there was a "Win32/Advspydetect" running on my computer. I scanned my computer and tried to remove it but got this:

Error encountered:
Code 0x80508017. Some actions couldn't be applied to potentially harmful items. The items might be stored in a read-only location. Delete the files or folders that contains the items or, for information on removing read-only permissions from files and folders, see Help and Support.

Category:
Potentially Unwanted Software

Description:
This program has potentially unwanted behavior.

Advice:
Permit this detected item only if you trust the program or the software publisher.

Resources:
process:
pid:2204

I scanned my computer several more times and got the same result. I then scanned with Superantispyware and Malwarebytes with no luck. How do I open "pid:2204" so I can delete this file? Can anyone please help me get rid of this? Thanks.
