If remove the infected, Search item from Start Menu reappears - but I don't need it. I like to keep the Start Menu as simple as I can...

P.S.: I have to mention there's no infection at all if Always scan extra and heuristics objects unchecked.

I've posted in this area because I suspect the scanning result a false positive. It only appears when Search item from Start Menu is removed - should I consider it as a threat?

There is no way to tell if it has been disabled by malware or by the user so we fix it for the less knowledgeable users assuming our more advanced users will understand the detection and use the ignore function .

Oh, I see. Thank you for your answer and for the promptness, too!
