Is this the same computer?

If so, it's probably advisable to stick with support in one thread in one place at a time.
Malware removal can be tricky, picky and sticky.
And it can be -- at best -- confusing or -- at worst -- dangerous to work simultaneously in multiple places.
A step advised by one helper may be unknown to another helper and that can lead to problems.
So, it might be a good idea to resume that existing thread.
And no two computer disinfection tools/scanners will pick up the same, exact things.
Having said all, that Spybot S&D is not one of the more highly-regarded anti-malware scanners these days.
And, without a scan log or more data, it would be hard to say if this detection might or might not be a false positive.
Just my thoughts,
Did you do the ESET Online Scanner as well? (you never mentioned that.)I see ESET found 1 thing, which you deleted.
I agree with MM - Spybot should be uninstalled. If you want something, use SuperAntiSpyware Free.
Visit VirusTotal - Free Online Virus, Malware and URL Scanner, upload the file and have them check it.
If it is a virus, yes remove it
Then launch Command Prompt (Admin)
enter the following commnad
that makes sure that system files from the component store are in the right place. It will put the correct file back if it is needed.

Here's a picture of the file (The file is in a different place than what Spybot reported. Additionally, I had to "Show hidden files" in order to find this)
I've scanned it with Avast and Malwarebytes and they found nothing either
(If it helps, I don't use Norton. I have a hunch that the Norton symbol is there because of the Norton free trial that was pre-installed in my computer when i got it a few years back)
SuperAntiSpyware only found tracking cookies
