So Kevin, I ran the things and the ads are gone, along with all of my Firefox customization, but I can fix that, definitely worth it!
But is there a reason to keep my DNS set to one of those two? I personally prefer CloudFlare as my DNS server as it is faster for gaming and will not limit the power of the computer I spent so much money to build.

Here are all of those logs you wanted though!

The minidump files indicate a problem with Graphics (video) card driver, if that crash persists maybe check Graphics card website for driver update..

If the ad issue is definitely ceased we can clean up as follows:

Uninstall Zemana http://www.askvg.com/how-to-completely-uninstall-remove-a-software-program-in-windows-without-using-3rd-party-software/

Next,

Right click on FRST here: C:\Users\PewDiePie\Downloads\FRST64.exe and rename uninstall.exe when complete right click on uninstall.exe and select "Run as Administrator"

If you do not see the .exe appended that is because file extensions are hidden, in that case just rename FRST64 to uninstall

That action will remove FRST and all created files and folders...

Next,

Remove all System Restore Points: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/33593-delete-system-restore-points-windows-10-a.html#option2

Create clean fresh Restore Point: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/create-system-restore-point

Run Windows Disk Clean Up Utility - https://neosmart.net/wiki/disk-cleanup/

From there you should be good to go...

Next,

Read the following links to fully understand PC Security and Best Practices, you may find them useful....

Hello OneSadBoi,

I noticed the minidump files in your log, I like to analyze incase they are related to current infection. In your case they were not, but I prefer to let you know the results for reference...

The minidumps are created after a system crash, yours were from 20th and 24th June 2019.

Thank you,

Kevin...;)
