So recently I acquired a virus from a file I downloaded, I immediately took to removing it using programs such as Malwarebytes, SuperANTISpyware, RKill, and TFC. I am running an MSI GE72 2QD Apache Pro with a GTX 960 M + 2gb dedicated ddr5 ram, it has an intel cor i7 cpu that is overclocked to 3.3ghz and it also has a plentyful 16GB of RAM. Before I had this virus my laptop ran fine, it never froze up, I had no issues with games, it was fast as can be. Now after acquiring this virus and removing it, my laptop acts like its only utilizing 2GB of RAM, my resource manager always has my laptop at using 98% of its RAM and I dont understand what is taking it all up. My laptop now lags when doing some of the most simple things, windows explorer is always crashing, movies cut, jump, and freeze. Even low graphics games such as call of duty world at war, freeze when any particle effects take place. PLEASE HELP

Have you tried going back to a system restore point taken prior to the infection?   Do you have a system image/full backup that you could use to do a "write-over" recovery of your system in its functioning state?

Plus check in Programs and Features in Control Panel. Order it by date descending order and look for things you don't think you installed and remove them. Also check startup in the task manager and see if something is running and startup that looks suspicious.
