    Ive downloaded Malwarebytes. It would be perfect if it can show me its file location, because whenever i quarantined and deleted the trojan, it will 'spawned' back

    Yeah, i did try to search it up at task manager, search file location and delete it. But it said ive no permission to do so.

    No, it would required a certain software to show its true form. But the problem is i didnt know what type of file is that.

    Update: Ive successfully delete the trojan (i guess) by using SYSTEM to restore my access and delete it. There is only 1 problem left, my chrome is missing. When i downloaded it from the official website and start it up, its icon will take the form of the most used apps.

    Well there is one thing left to do. (More than 1)

    1. Get Avast Antivirus. (It's REALLY good)
    2. Boot into Safe Mode, find the trojan and REMOVE IT. Safe mode deleting works most of the time. (Delete all the files, not just one. Can be hidden in your whole computer)
    3. System Reset
    4. Get a FixMe stick for $20 at a tech shop
    Make the most out of life. Be happy and do all the things you want to do.

    I'd imagine the virus infected it in some way.

    Avast requires credit card, and I don't have one

    Just get an external hard drive to back up your files, wipe your hard drive and do a clean install for windows.
