how to remove a file that "contains a virus or malware" from notifications 2
Every time I run browser it messages me that downloaded file contains a virus or malware, even I deleted the file long time ago. I tried Ctrl+J "Remove from history", "Clear downloads" and Organize/Delete that entry - Nothing helps. Its deleting, but when I run Firefox its appears again and again. This bug is terrible annoying, please fix it.

Deleting cache and reinstalling Firefox don't help either.
This means it is a installed software malware and to remove means you boot your computer in Windows Safe Mode with Networking and then open FireFox in Private Mode Window to prevent anything from loading. And then you will have to look at the Addons in Firefox to find it and also look at your Add/Remove uninstall O/S to find the file to remove it. That is the only Safe way to insure nothing other then needed sys files runs so you can remove the malware. Remember anytime a malware/virus gets past the A/V you can't just remove or uninstall it without doing Safe Mode with the O/S or FireFox Private Mode.
