Everytime I start my computer, avast detects a infected file, bill.lnk, located in C:\Desktop-DD7435Q. The file is not showing the desktop or the explorer. I always click on remove it, but appears again and again when restarting.

Following on register HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\lnk I've seen I think I should see a subkey named "UserChoice" which I don't have .
The threat is an "Au3Runner-A" acording to Avast. I'm looking into that but I can't find the meaning of it anywhere.

I also found these two files on recent files, but they do not appear on the desktop, where they should be. I can't delete them.

How do I completely delete it? Or is it not harmful?

Okay so after running that and deleting some of the infected files, avast hasn't detected that lnk again after restarting multiple times. I'll keep watching but this found / deleted something that other programs have not.
