I have Windows 10.  I think I have a virus.  I have installed the following; Malware Bytes, Adware Cleaner, Hitman Pro, CC cleaner, and Zemana Anti Malware.  I have been running these daily, but my computer is running much slower than normal.  Several PUP files have been removed and I had a Trojan DNS changer ACM32 that was deleted (I hope).  Also quarantined was Artemis! B2E89751A163- Quarantines from AppData/Local/Temp/96046462.t.exe.  I have deleted temporary files numerous times, cleared browsing history, did disk cleanup.  Please tell me what I need to do next.  Also, is it safe to Clean my Registry files in CC cleaner? It is showing me about a 100 errors, but I am scared to select fix issues because of things I've read about messing with my registry files.

Do you have registry backups via tweaking.com's Registry Backup/Restore program?  And, you do have current OS and Data partition backups on external media?  If yes, and if the BC staff gives you the go-ahead - you can experiment with ccleaner.  Otherwise, you're correct, leave the registry alone.

Before you do anything registry, make sure it's clean. Lets get a deeper look... Start at step 6...
