So today I got this virus (I think it is a virus), not sure what it does exactly, but these are the symptoms so far:

 

Can't use task manager, as it seems to be hiding all the processes and programs:

I am able to see the processes if I don't have Task Manager highlighted (leaving it off to the side with any other window highlighted like notepad);

When I restart/shut down my computer, it shows a blue screen with white text on it instead of shutting down.

 

Already ran Malwarebytes multiple times, still the same.

 

I can turn on my computer without the virus when in safe mode, need further instructions on how to remove this.

 

Found one of the symptoms on youtube if it helps:
