Run CCleaner to clear Cache/Temp files for your browsers (IE/Edge etc.), or press and hold Ctrl+Shift+Del in your browser.

You can uncheck Cookie detection in HitmanPro scanner options. Cookies are harmless.

Done but why does Emsisoft detects Avira as malware?

I disabled Clamav And from now Emsisoft till they fix it..
good idea to disable Clam.

As for Emsisoft, which is generally pretty reliable, why can't you just make an exception for the files you know are clean?

It is very common for AVs to flag other security softwares as malicious, because by computer analysis, security software looks like it is digging too deep into the system. If you disable every AV that has a false detection of this type, you will end up with nothing left...

SecureAPlus uses VirusTotal?

For the latest results, scan the file using Emsisoft Emergency Kit, Emsisoft Anti-Malware or upload directly to VirusTotal to verify it is a FP.

SAP used to use VirusTotal but their were asked to discontinue their usage of it after VT changed their policy:
An Important Update on Second Opinion Scanning & VirusTotal

They do still have their "Universal AV" though which consists of 12 (possibly added/removed some since I last tried it) antivirus engines from Ahnlab, AVG, Avira, BitDefender, ClamWin, ESET, Emsisoft, McAfee, Microsoft , Quick Heal, Sophos, and Total Defense.
