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?
Did you turn off User Account control?
Have you tried running an sfc/scannow?
Question -- How much TIME have you spent on all this
Next time - CLEAN RESTORE FROM A CLEAN BACKUP - would have taken you around 30 Mins max -- end of story
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.

I actually have clean backups, I just dont know how to restore back to them :/
"Did you turn off User Account control? "
I have not turned that off ever - no
"Have you tried running an sfc/scannow?"
Doing that now.. didnt think of that...
"Does any other Metro app work, or is Edge the only non-functional app?"
I`ve noticed that the Windows Store doesnt work and keeps saying please check your connection... Shazam also doesnt wok....

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.
