Well I managed to get my first virus in a decade due to negligence and being tired. Having a hell of a hard time actually getting rid of it though. I've formatted and reinstalled windows twice now each time I've ran Malwarebytes once and it finds ~170 threats that I quarantine, then 2 "Registry Value" PUP's repeatedly keep popping up. I've traced the Registry Key path that Malwarebytes gives me to a corrupted folder that contains what is being generated but even after deleting those in my Registry it continues to generate those 2 small PUP's from somewhere else but I don't have super in-depth knowledge of Registry files so it's hard to find the origin source. As i've said this is my first virus in a decade and i've never had one this deep so at this point i'm at a loss on what my actions are. I've enclosed a couple files including my malwarebytes report of the two PUP's in question, and a screenshot comparing the Registry Key being created & location to the Registry Value path that Malwarebytes leads me on. I'm hoping to maybe get some feedback on what I could be looking for in my registry (or if someone can spot it in my brief screenshot) or if there are any trusted programs that can help the registry? Or is my only option trying to Hardwipe everything with DBAN? If I used DBAN would it absolutely necessary to DBAN even my external HDD? Literally any help or feedback is appreciated, thank you.

Hi, I am very new to this. I am so happy I found your site. It detected over 2000 threats. 2 were identified as malware (Please see image) and all the others were PUP files (?). When malwarebytes prompted me to quarantine, I noticed the 2 identified as malware were not on the list. I proceeded with the process anyway and in the final report I did not see those 2 items. Does this mean it was never removed? How would I remove it if they weren't? Thank you, J
Upon doing a scan some months ago (Can't currently determine the exact date) I found what seemed to be malware, and immediately quarantined the item. Because I realize run dll's are often essential, I decided to leave it quarantined rather than immediately removing the threat. I've searched all over google for an answer to the validity of this "Registry Value", but have had no success. Below is a screenshot containing information of the location of said "Backdoor" as labeled by Malware Bytes: I would like to know if I should delete, quarantine or restore this, or if there are any other solutions to this issue. The help would be greatly appreciated as I currently have no idea what the reprecussions of leaving this in my system are.
