    Hi harjee and welcome to Tenforums.
    Please download Kyhi's custom rescue media, boot your system to it, and run Malwarebytes Antimalware on your OS drive.

    See if that doesn't help you get control back of your OS.

    Hi Harjee,

    Can you please tell us how you think you were infected? Did you receive an email, or do you think that you went to a malicious website? Were you targeted?
