Hello. I accidently downloaded something earlier today and it subsequently downloaded many programs on my computer. I immediately ran a windows defender scan, and while it was running I began to uninstall these several programs. A couple google chrome extensions were installed as well, I deleted them. Windows defender found two Trojans and removed them. I thought I was fine. The previous windows defender scan was a "quick" scan, so I then began a "Full" scan. Also at around this point, my Google Chrome crashed suddenly. I reopened it and it tried to bring me to a "clickforums.ru" site but nothing would load. I couldn't load anything else either. It would just fail to load any page. I started to look on the internet on how to remove this clickforums thing but I made little progress. I had no malicious extensions and the google chrome shortcut did not have any weird website in its "target". Then, it got worse to the point where when I opened Google Chrome, It tried to go to that site or "www-searching.com" but it would sort of crash Chrome and go to a "Not Responding" situation. My windows defender scan came back with another Trojan and removed it. I left my computer for a couple hours, I came back and found a couple new programs appeared. I ran a quick windows defender scan and removed another Trojan. I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome and had the same issue. I tried to download Zemana antimalware because I figured that Windows Defender was not sufficiently removing whatever I have. I tried to run Zemana and I got this error: "The requested resource is in use". I cannot run it. Around this time I notice a dataup.exe instance running, I looked it up and it's malware related so I felt it was worth mentioning. I tried downloading Malwarebytes and the same error appeared. I found this site and here I am. Pls help.
Google Chrome (previously)
Microsoft Edge (now)
