Are the file types shown at the end of your file names, as windows has a habit of not displaying known file types (default setting). Why they do that is beyond me because to many what is a known file type.

If not in the same area as hidden files there is an option Hide extensions for known file types, also shown in my image (unchecked).

Other than that I'm at a loss as to what else to suggest.

Is avast still detecting it ?

Weird, but the 64,000 Dollar question is it still detected by avast ?

No, being in the log isn't detection but recording a previous detection.

I mean if you did another scan does avast detect a virus (alarm, re-detection specifically on the same file.) ?

If it it no longer detected then you have nothing to worry about other than where the original file went.

So aside from the mystery of where it went there is now no problem.

You could try a windows search for "Detective Barbie In the Mystery of the Carnival Caper iSO" without the quotes, I have intentionally left of the file type, just incase. I doubt you will find it if an avast thorough scan with archives didn't, peace of mind perhaps.
