I have Windows 10

 

I'm pretty sure it came from an update to a freeware program called freemake audio converter. Usually never gives me problems but I rushed through the last update and must've overlooked some add on programs to it or something. It installed chromium and also set all my default search bars and home pages to yahoo. Changed the search bars back and uninstalled Chromium from control panel. It's no longer there to uninstall but still autoruns every time I start my pc. Tried deleting the source folder by changing the permissions on it. No luck.
