The following will remove the tools we used as well as reset system restore points:

KpRm

Download KpRm by kernel-panik and save it to your desktop.
  • Right-click kprm_(version).exe and select Run as Administrator.
  • Read and accept the disclaimer.
  • When the tool opens, ensure all boxes under Actions are checked.
  • Under Delete Quarantines select Delete Now, then click Run.
  • Once complete, click OK.
  • A log will open in Notepad titled kprm-(date).txt.
  • Please copy and paste its contents in your next reply.

Some tips to keep your computer safe on the Internet

Make sure to use strong passwords. There are password managers (for example, Bitwarden) that can help you use secure passwords, and keep track of them.

Keeping software up-to-date is important as well. Programs such as UCheck, Heimdal Free, or PatchMyPC can help keep software on your computer up-to-date.

To keep your operating system up-to-date, make sure that Windows Update is enabled on your computer.

I recommend backing up your PC regularly. There are several ways to back up your computer, such as using a cloud-based service online, external hard drive, or CD/DVD.

The following articles have more information about methods to back up your computer:
