I stupidly managed to get a virus downloading something I thought was safe, and now I'm stuck with the consequences. This is my first time dealing with one, so I'm not sure how to deal with it anymore than I already have. I've tracked down as many files as I could, going through the random processes running on my task manager that aren't supposed to be there and tracking their file locations and deleting them, however there are a couple of locked folders containing more files that I can't get to. I've tried resources like FileAssassin and RKill, but they won't delete the files and RKill isn't even detecting the malware to stop it. My PC is virtually unusable at the moment, as my CPU usage stays at at least constantly due to the malware processes (it was at 100% but I brought it down through deleting as many files as possible). I've tried multiple ways of accessing those locked folders, but nothing has worked. I've went into the security tab and tried to change the ownership/permissions, and I've even went into the registry and edited the values to give myself a "take ownership" option, yet nothing would work.
I know this probably isn't the most technologically in-tune post, but like I said, this is my first (and hopefully last) rodeo with a virus. Please ask any questions necessary so I can elaborate and help you understand my problem.
