Hi, I recently had a Trojan Virus on my computer so I am doing scans to make sure it is gone. I went and did a boot time scan and it came up with all of these files as being infected and many others as being corrputed. Link to image: https://imgur.com/gallery/SsBZ79W The 2 Trojan virus files are andrewcrew.exe and apparently it is a blender file. The 2 PUP that Avast detected are not unwanted so that is wrong. And the 5 Java:Agent-FBV files are for a hacked Minecraft client. Are any of these files dangerous or was the sensitivity for the scan too high or was Avast just being stupid. Also, there are many corrupted zip archives and installers that Avast detected, are these actually corrupted or is it too high sensitivity or Avast being dumb.

PUP = Potentially Unwanted Program They are usually programs that can be used for good or bad.
It's a warning.

Ok, so the PUPs could be dangerous, should I uninstall them? Also are the blender file and the Java files dangerous?
