Today i unknowingly downloaded a virus and ran it. It installed many files most of which Malwarebytes caught but appearntly some may have slipped through the cracks. One of which is a browser redirect tool which opens up a google chrome tab to the game "Ragnarok Arena" and another is a process (or task) that i notice on task manager trying to clean up the virus that has a default settings icon and no name, it seems to take up lots of cpu and memory whenever it's running. Trying to locate the file location, i notice that is send me to this directory This PC > Local Disk C: > Windows > SysWOW64 > svchost.exe I'm unaware if this is normal or part of the same virus. I do know however that one time my Firefox tab got closed (could be the virus idk). Can anybody help me identify/remove these, Thanks.
