I have installed some free software for dvd burning called Burn4Free, and of course, it installed loads of sh1t into my laptop. I removed everything it installed, or at least I thought so. It edited my hosts file, adding some website adresses to it.. it was starting my google chrome and opening some stupid websites like every 20 seconds, got rid of this... then removed many files that were running some randomly named processes, thought I'm clean, but no.
This evening one of my programs suddenly shut down, most of the icons everywhere in my pc became blank, files now have .losers extension, etc.
I have deleted many suspicious files, there wasn't any classic ransom notification popping up anywhere, asking for money to get this thing removed, which is weird, as it seems to be same for all these ransomwares from what I seen.
I have tried all different decrypting programs, none detected this type of crap. I have also tried to upload some of the decrypted files to Demonslay335's ID ransomware website that I found in the sticky (PINNED) thread. What is said was ->
This ransomware has no known way of decrypting data at this time.
It is recommended to backup your encrypted files, and hope for a solution in the future.

I haven't found anyone on the internet who would have .losers extension on their files, what the hell is this? Some new ransomware?
Any idea what can I do now? I can't even install/uninstall any program..
Would reinstalling windows help if I don't find any other solution?
Thanks for any possible help
