As a cross-check, you might download and run the free version of Malwarebytes...

You can also check individual files (as well as URL's) on VirusTotal...

Most of the log detections appear to be related to entries from your Opera and Chrome browser (extensions, plugins, temp files, etc). Such detections are typical when using anti-malware scanners and they do not pose the same type of threat as virus, Trojans and worms.

In simplistic terms, Anti-virus programs use massive databases with different scanning engines and detection methods to scan for infectious malware which includes viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkis and bots.
Anti-malware programs use smaller databases and generally tend to focus more on adware, spyware, unwanted toolbars, browser hijackers, potentially unwanted programs and potentially unsafe applications.
Anti-virus and Anti-malware solutions with anti-exploitation features protect against zero-day malware, drive-by downloads, exploits, exploit kits and ransomware.Therefore, you need both an anti-virus and an effective anti-malware solution with real-time protection for maximum protection.

The Malware Hunter Pro review I glanced at on Youtube sure looked pretty eerily similar to Qihoo's 360TS...maybe just in styling, of course, unsure of what all is 'under the hood'....

 

(So much so, that it makes me wonder if it was simply 360TS or a close variant magically licensed/rebranded....)

I typically do not give much credence to YouTube videos unless they are created by a trusted source.

PC Hunter 64 is very very like ransomware. It hooks its self into your games and files and before you know it you cant do anything for the "PC Hunter 64 has blocked" and no matter what you do you cant get rid of it and if you ask the people who make it they tell you its your AV and security software or you need an update. So many threads online about this program and still its recommended here......

 

I would get and use MWB Malwarebytes and or Zemana AntiLogger. I have used both for a while now and Zemana AntiLogger in particular is amazing, however like MWB its trial and only on demand if you dont pay.

 

I have a bunch of legit trial keys 200 day or so that they gave me to pass around and have done but they seem to be multi user as have given few away and the they still work. They not making a whole lot and been going for a while, I think its as so many programme out their and they not so well known like Norton and the rest.

 

Anyway gl :)
