I have a custom desktop with an ssd. Windows 10 was installed however I think I got a virus from some online game. Anyway now mbam won't install (svchost.exe access denied), sfc is saying there's corruption, and rkill is saying that there's missing services and incorrect imagepaths. I decide to just completely format the drive (using the windows 10 installer, i removed all partitions until it was all unallotocated space and then created a new partition). Then I installed win10 fresh, and the first thing I try to do is run rkill, which shows the SAME services are missing and the same incorrect imagepaths. Also mbam wont install with the same error as earlier. I'm baffled by this. Thanks in advance for advice.

It would appear we should get a deeper look.

Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
