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?
