after running a full scan&finding potential harm I removed,

August 2, 2016 at 12:52:02
Specs: Windows 64
After I ran a full scan Microsoft Defender showed that there were three potentially harmful threats....when the scan completed it gave me the option of removing these three items, which I did. Is there anything I should still be worried about? I also keep getting a message that my drive has been disconnected for too long, reconnect it.... I researched on how to fix this but it's not working, any suggestions? Please and thank you!

"Is there anything I should still be worried about?"
Lets tackle this side of things first.

Here are the first 2 steps, more steps will be needed, after I see the results of these logs.

Run them in this order.

Step 1: Run AdwCleaner
Author's site
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click Scan
In the results tabs, uncheck anything you don't want to remove.
Click on Cleaning.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[C1 or later].txt as well.

Step 2: Run Malwarebytes Junkware Removal Tool
Download Malwarebytes Junkware Removal Tool onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
Warning! Once the scan is complete JRT will shut down your browser with NO warning.
Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
Temporarily disable your antivirus and any antispyware real time protection before performing a scan.
Click this link to see a list of security programs that should be disabled and how to disable them.
Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7/8, right-click JRT and select Run as Administrator.
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved onto your Desktop and will automatically open.
Copy and Paste the contents of the JRT.txt log please.
