Hello, apologies if I posted in the wrong section.
A few days ago I noticed that my computer had been acting funny, I would get DNS errors while browsing, programs I normally use without any problems started crashing and leaving memory errors, and I was running out of memory frequently even without many applications open. When I checked task manager, I noticed that the process "System" was taking up nearly half a gigabyte in memory. I ran a few scans and came up with nothing, then I decided to try out malwarebytes anti-rootkit scanner. The first time I ran it, whatever it was that infected my system auto-closed it and left a memory error window. The program was corrupted when I attempted to open it again. So I installed it again in safe mode and ran it, it turned up with 4 infected files which I removed. (I would list them here, but I lost them after reformatting my computer).
I hoped that was the end of it, but the system process was still swelling up and the errors were still persistent so I decided to use the reset function on my computer. When my computer finished resetting it ended up with a boot error so I formatted the drive and reinstalled windows via a bootable usb. This normally would solve all my problems, but my System process is still bloating up to nearly a gigabyte and my laptop fan is going crazy even though there are no CPU/memory intensive programs running.
How do I go about removing this? The laptop shows no signs of infection other than what I have posted above. I am using Windows 10 and I can post whatever information is necessary.
Thank you in advance.
