Hello. I have been having a hell of a time with this virus. It deletes programs as soon as they're installed, won't even let malwarebytes' installer open and I believe it has also written over some system files. I willingly installed this because I wasn't paying attention. It was called "Chrome_Font.exe" and I installed it because I was presented a site for lightsabers with missing fonts. It said I needed to upgrade my fonts. I live new fonts as I'm a graphic designer but it didn't occur to me how ridiculous it was that I would need new fonts until I clicked run already. It ran the installer and forcefully restarted my computer. This happened on December 29, and I didn't notice until the new year. I have been trying everything I can. A friend suggested I install windows 10 but I am not sure I can even do that. Can you please help me? If you google "Chrome_Font.exe" there are sites that have evaluated it. I am not sure what to do with that info but maybe one of you can. Thank you.

Run RKILL first than MBAM again.
Please download Rkill by Grinler and save it to your desktop.
