    Windows 10, Can't reset

    I tried to download some stuff for a game yesterday and let's just say, it didn't go well. I was overwhelmed with malware and Trojan alerts from windows defender including a settingsmodifier and a Trojan that I just can't get to go away no matter how many times I clean the system with windows defender.

    I also have lost the ability to go on the Internet because of a problem with the proxy server. Which I can change for some reason (I assume having to do with the bugs). I figured I would just reset the pc because I don't have much on here that's important. When I tried to click "get started" under the reset this pc, nothing happened....

    I'm at a loss for what to do, at this point I just want to reset the computer and move on, please help me!

    Thanks in advance,

    If you just want vanilla Windows 10 without all the manufacturer extra software, just do a clean install from a USB or DVD:
