If I were you I would post in the Malware removal area of the forum

First, run Disk Cleanup and get rid of all the temp files.
I would recommend using the Custom Scan option of Malwarebytes Antimalware, rather than Anti-Rootkit.
Click Scan on the left side of the screen, click on Custom Scan, click on Configure Scan, and check the Scan for rootkits option.
Click Scan Now and let it run...it can take a while.

This particular file is reminiscent of the NEMUCOD Ransomware, a very nasty Ransomware I removed from a Customer's computer after spending hundreds of hours to remove it. If you indeed have a merchant UPS account, the author(s) of this Ransomware spoof a fake E-mail from UPS that appears to be legit, with UPS logo and all. Clicking on the attachment to see what happened to your Package locks up all your files on your PC and all attached external hard drives and flash drives. It took me 4 weeks of working night and day to remove this Ransomware; so you should be very careful here. You're stuff isn't locked up-yet! But, certainly could be if you don't get it removed properly from your computer.
I'd strongly recommend you follow Opera's suggestion in Post #2 and let the guys in the Malware removal forum get involved in your cleanup of this particular virus. It's probably a variant, since it hasn't locked and encrypted all your files yet, but you really need to get it looked at.
The other suggestion I would make to you, is that you can't be an expert at fixing every kind of problem with your computer. These days, hackers use some very sophisticated tools and phishing scams, of which you can be sure you are a victim of; you may not have the necessary experience to fix this problem yourself. Consider taking it to your local licensed Computer Tech and paying a professional to remove this virus. Just because you use free tools available on the Internet and you think you've gotten rid of it, doesn't mean you did, and a nasty payload could be just sitting on your hard drive like a ticking time bomb waiting to go off when you least expect it. Hey, it's your computer, but at the very least do you at least have all your Personal Data on that PC backed up to external media in case the "bomb" goes off on you?
Best of luck,
