Windows 10: My desktop pc got infected with a virus, still having problems

The issues you are having are more than likely the result of downloading cracked/pirated/illegal software.
Participating in the use of such software is a definite security risk.
Accepting and allowing the use of illegal software is not a motivation for volunteering my help in this forum.
Does any other Metro app work, or is Edge the only non-functional app?

Why don't people EVER LEARN - TAKE REGULAR CLEAN BACKUPS - then if you do get something nasty from a torrent site or elsewhere a CLEAN restore will rid the computer of any of this nasty stuff.

Can I launch a police report if I know who are installing backdoor virus into my computer system?
Anyone else getting this. Bitdefender is throwing up this alarm every time I click on this web site or any post in this site. Never had this before, so it could well be a false positive.
