Hey everyone new to the forums, I might be in a sticky situation. Im not tech savvy so bare with me, my brother was downloading sims 2 off of Pirate Bay, and somehow he managed to get a virus. I dont think the torrent itself was the issue but one of the cracks was missing so he went off and downloaded one off the internet and this is where I think he fd up. This is my school laptop so Im in some deep water if I dont get this fixed.. whatever he downloaded it came with some Russian applications, Im afraid that my personal data might be jn jeopardy. I had a vpn running at the time but idk if that plays a key role in protecting me from certain attacks. They managed to change my language settings to Russian so my desktop is unreadable. When I search up administrations theres something that has popped up credential manager thats never been there before, should I be worried?? I disconnected from the WiFi and set my laptop on airplane mode. I tried deleting the programs but they kept reappearing over and over so Im out of ideas. My firewall went crazy kept telling me there was a threat but Im afraid they were overriding my laptop so I couldnt do much. Pls I need help I can provide pics if needed
