Well, uh I installed a program that gave me a virus despite the red flags that people warned me about (which I didn't notice in till after) and proceedingly may unwanted programs started flooding it's way into my computer. I started running Malwarebytes, but it was closed while the virus spread.

 

Later I went into safe-mode and ran Malwarebytes again, ran Adwcleaner and SuperAntispyware and they all removed quit a bit of problems. Then I went into normal mode to experince a black screen for a minute, and programs would start up and run slow. Then I did a clean boot and it ran faster on start up, only to become slower over time. Now I am running Malwarebytes again and it claims 0 detected objects and is at the Heuristic Analysis (Well, now it finished and found 0 threats)

 

Is it a Hard Drive issue i'm facing? Or a well concealed Malware? I'll say now on normal mode my computer acts so slow Task Manager has trouble opening up.  Also a adware named www.searching.com is still on Chrome. I can also provide images of the problem if needed
