So i downloaded a program that appeared to be safe ( I scanned it with Malwarebytes and Avast), I ran the set-up, and Avast Deep Screen came up and started to analyze the program. It said it was safe. The set-up told me that I should download these other programs, and when i declined the set-up closed. Eventually I ran the set-up again and clicked Agree for the other software to be installed. This is where it got REALLY bad. Avast started popping up with its notifications saying that there were viruses and other malware it found. I ran a Malwarebytes scan and it found 138 objects that I deleted, then I ran another scan for Malwarebytes and it found something new, but halfway through the scan my computer Blue-Screened. I ran Windows in safe mode and ran another Malwarebytes scan, this time only 1 object was detected. I restarted my computer and nothing malicious seems to be running, except this weird new program called iusb3mon.exe, also something called SiteAdvisor is running.. Some of the programs previously downloaded are STILL on my desktop. I need help.
Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
Edit: I scanned Avast because it finally started to work, and it found one more object. I am scanning again with it to make sure everything is clean. The desktop icons have yet to go away and I know they are malware...
Edit: Avast finished the scan but TONS of files could not be accessed even though i ran Avast as an administrator. Nothing was detected and the icons are still there.. along with the original set-up file that caused all of this.
FYI: The programs I am trying to get rid of are called KNCTR, DocToPDF, and 2 copies of Tubenoia Youtube Bot <<(the set up that caused this)
