    A few days ago I accidently downloaded a virus. I clicked on the download button, instead of the download link. The download button was a virus, when I opened the file, it proceeded to download many unwanted programs to my computer. Some of the symptoms my computer is having are:
    -File keeps popping up on my desktop named, "Continue Live Installation"
    -That same file opens on its on several times while im on the computer. I Close It and do not continue with the installation
    -Almost everything I click on makes ads pop up in new windows.
    -Their are ads all over websites that would normally not have ads (ex. Youtube, facebook)
    -Computer is generally slower


    Those are my problems. Things I have done so far are:
    -Immediately uninstalled unwanted programs via control panel
    -Ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and got rid of anything it found
    -Ran RKill and JRT
    -Ran Hitman Pro and got rid of anything it found

    After this I am still having all the problems listed above. I hope someone can help me out please!!! This is a work computer and I haven't been able to do any work all week :(.

    Welcome to TSG,

    I've removed your offer since that is not allowed on these forums.

    What kind of work computer is this?
