    if you have GWT I think it will provide you the exact path of the file causing the problem.

    Well, it looks like you have 3 choices here.

    1. Get rid of the files that are causing the issue. You won't be earning from those files any more but you can regain at least some of your rankings prior to this predicament.
    2. Ignore the issue and let your rankings continue to drop. You'll lose most of your traffic and you won't earn from those files any more.
    3. Scan the files that are causing the issue, find the issue in those files, remove the issue, and then upload the files again. You'll regain some of your rankings in time and you'll be able to keep earning from your files.

    If you are earning from those files, then you need to remove them from your website, create a free website on wordpress, weebly or blogger. etc......
    Upload those files and direct the users to it.
    If you don't act, you might lose all the earns from the site altogether.

    Check out the .htaccess file and iframe for suspicious code injections.

    The best piece of advice anyone can give you right now is to remove the file from your site. In other words, stop hosting the file and move it to a file sharing site. Once that is completed, link to the file sharing site from your main site. You'll still be able to earn money from that file while keeping your site clean.

    Since your site is no longer performing as well as it used to in the SERPs, you have to "request a review" of your site in order to remove the malware warning and regain your former positions in the SERPs. Here's a helpful link:
