OK.
Sorry for the long scan, but that can happen with a very large number of files.

You can see the file that is infected in one of your backup folders. It's POSSIBLE that it's a false positive, but Kaspersky doesn't make many mistakes.
First, make sure you don't use that compressed (packed) file again.
Better still, you should delete it.
I hate to ask, but I am suspicious it may have somehow turned out to be a crack. Can you remember from where you downloaded it?

Otherwise the machine looks good.

level18barbarian,
That's fine.
Remember, virtually all cracks are loaded with infections, ready to bust your machine for someone else's benefit.
I think you are clean.
Good luck.
