So, it was quite a ride with this one.
For a reference and running it into a virtual PC or something, this is the link to the suspected link that I may have stupidly enough clicked and exited from in less than 2 seconds
Please, handle the link with care, and only through a VPC setup.
I was first alarmed when my PC text-to-speeched me something about "anus" whilst I was watching a video, which got me to the next immediate steps.
I immediately system restored to a previous date and ever since I did there wasn't anything indicative of malware on my system. RKill, TRSS, MWAR, Malwarebytes etc don't find anything even remotely suspicious.
Ever since I cannot find anything, other than this CMD running at start up (check screenshot) which could be connected to a bumpy system restore. I need to know that my PC is safe though, I'd rather go through the trouble to format everything (though I'd desire not to, since I wouldn't know how to reupgrade to W 10).

If any of you guys can assist me with this, I'd be eternally grateful.

Add Eset One-Time Scan to the list returning negative and bitdefender free finding 3 positives buy highly doubtable. I have however cleaned them and if needed will repair the programs I deemed it found false positive (like steamservice.dll or something which was were it was supposed to be, couldn't be a rootkit in that place, etc)

Honestly, thank you for replying to me, but I am pretty certain everything is under control. The text to speech I heard was literally a discord plaything and I was told of it after I made the post. Also the CMD prompt started coming up after the system restore which could have resulted in some files being invalidated, since it stopped after I repaired the installation and then deleted the program from my computer.

It is fair to say that my computer is virus free. I am sorry for making a fuss over it, I really didn't expect something that simple. I wish you the best. Happy hunting <3
