I accidentally installed some malware and trojan into my computer.
I have followed all the solutions i could find (scanning my PC with Zemana, Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, etc.). I managed to remove some of the malware but syshostctl.exe and sysnetwk.exe is still running.
My command prompt keeps appearing and disappearing every 5 minutes

Please help.

Nevermind guys problem solved.

At first i couldn't delete those files because they were running in my PC

But then i restarted my computer and i saw that they weren't running anymore

I went to the file location and deleted the Dsq file and everything went back to normal

Thanks guys.
