I found out that i have a duplicating .exe that keeps on duplicating in the Local folder. Its called sqrt.exe and then the exe creates a process for a AD audio to pop up and i have to turn down the volume in volume mixer. 

 

 i have tried ending the process then deleting it but then another one pops up in the local folder and i don't know how to get rid of it.

I have also tried 2 antivirus softwares

1.Malwarebytes

2.HitmanPro

Does anyone know a fix?
