  1. hello, I've got unlucky 3 days ago and a virus package started to download and install itself on my PC. After I accidentally opened the malware infected exe file, due to a weird pop-up which immediately closed itself, I checked my virus scanner and it was turned off. After that I removed my internet cable with insane human speed, and got a lot of error messages that this and that program could not install. After lot of googling I scanned my PC with Avast and Malwarebytes. And they together found over 90 suspicious files. More than 20 were trojan bitcoinminer. After that I noticed that my PC got slightly faster, but then chrome opened itself directing me to a random page. I found out about SearchScope malware, I downloaded AdwCleaner. It found 2 more trojans and 11 PUPs. I remembered a program called HiJackThis which was used back then. And after I used it I found more SearchScope lines in the registry, I manually deleted them (there were 5). But then 2 of those searchscope registry files renewed itself, and none of my scanners could find anything. And lastly in the HiJackThis txt file I found an exe called cheatengine, since I never used it, I googled after it, and found out it's a virus too. Sorry if I wrote too much, I thought it will be easier to help knowing what I did in the last 3 days. The reason why I am asking for help is that I cannot clean up the trash after the malwares, because I cannot find them. And I am getting kind of tired and confused by now. Thank you for helping with this. I included my HiJackThis file too, because it says (file missing) to the cheatengine.exes, and that is what made me confused. I could not include my Malwarebytes threat scan log, because I installed, scanned and uninstalled it, due to weird working after the scan. And now I installed it again, it is fine now. One last thing I could not find anything useful about it on the internet. Only my AVAST shows it when I do a performance scan, it says there is a program called GOTO: <Product Name> running in the background. Is that a malware/spyware? Bill.
