Lately, my windows explorer has been running at an incredibly high rate. Likely a virus on my system, but I don't know what. Malwarebytes keeps picking up spyware and adware and whatnot, and I run the full scan, supposedly get rid of the issues, and then restart my computer as it requests, but it seems that my computer is still running very slow. Additionally, I've got some form of Google search redirect virus. Every time I click a link, it redirects me to a different website than what I was looking for. Apparently Malwarebytes either cannot find, or is incapable of removing the issue. I made sure the version I have is the most recent.

Any ideas? I'm attaching a photo of the insanely high memory usage, so please, if you see anything out of the ordinary, let me know.

If any other information will help, please tell me!

Thank you!

I also attempted the classic system restore move, but have been getting this error...

And I have tried to revert back to two different checkpoints.
