    I downloaded a .exe resulting in some weird things coming up my PC. First thing I noticed was that when I went to search something, a new search engine came up. I went to settings, deleted it and set it to Google. Few seconds later the same engine comes up. After the 3rd time deleting it from search engines, it because undeleteable. I looked into Task manager and theres 3 things I dont know if they could be the problem, or just a normal file. ( APP Manager, GrooveMonitor Utility, Live Update 6 Application. ) Also in task manager 1 time i could see a file pop up, then instantly go away. I tried to use Malwarebytes, but when I opened it an error came up, tried to reinstall it with a USB, but I get the same error. The error says "Unable to connect the Service". This is probably my last hope as I tried many sites for help. If I cant get help here, Ill reinstall windows ( atleast ill try to figure it out because ive never done it before )
    My discord is bencie#1996 by the way if you want to communicate there.
