Rkill's scan is clean. But if Avast said it found malware....what did it do? Did it remove it...or do you know?
You can check further as Rkill is just one small program and isn't actually useful for many types of adware and malware.
Use CCleaner to remove Temporary files, program caches, cookies, logs, etc. Use the Default settings. No need to use the
Registry Cleaning Tool...risky. Pay close attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars....especially Google.
After install, open CCleaner and run by clicking on the Run Cleaner button in the bottom right corner.
Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from Here
Double-click mbam-setup-2.X.X.XXXX.exe to install the application (X's are the current version number).
Download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.

It said it found files affected by malware, but not malware itself, so I was confused on that. It "moved to chest" for those files that were affected. There were also files in Windows that were affected but I read on a post that it can affect how your computer runs, so I wasn't sure if I should move to chest so I left it there for now.

Without knowing what files were quarantined or what files you decided not to quarantine that Avast says are malware, no one here can offer advice one way or the other.
I still say you should run the programs in my first post to assist you in cleaning up the computer and possibly verify what Avast found.
