    Run Disk Cleaner or CCleaner to clear PC junk. Then run a full deep scan again. If you can schedule a boot-time or a safe mode scan, do that. Let your AV remove detected malware and restart the computer.

    If you still face the issue, use Microsoft Safety Scanner or some other Free Standalone On demand Antivirus Scanners for Windows.

    PLEASE! If you run CCleaner do not run the registry clean/optimize part. In today's versions of Windows such registry cleaners tend to cause more issues than they solve.

    CCleaner is considered safe to use.
    Note: select the option to create a backup before deleting anything.

    However many other "optimizers" / "registry cleaners" can cause a lot of problems.....
