Title says it, stupid ads using internet explorer keep popping up on start-up. Even though I ran MBAM, super anti-spyware, sophos, AVG and Avast anti viruses, they all say my system is clean after getting rid of most of the malware. I checked the programs list and nothing abnormal shows aswell as task processes, i have never seen a virus so well FUD.

adwcleaner and norton erase couldnt find anything either, but I managed to root out and exterminate the remaining malware using more different softwares. now all thats left is to restore the damage done to my start menu and windows functions in general, for some reason they wont open. it wont let me right-click or expand some programs such as powershell, or even let me use the windows search funtion

I am using Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

This sounds like it was pretty persistent and that it was more the "spyware/adware" flavor rather than something destructive. If you have any samples or examples of what you saw (screenshots, list of files that were removed) you can submit them to us: https://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB258

In this case (if the issue persists) I'd also try running Avast Cleanup or something similar.

Its a bit late for that, already did a clean reinstall of the OS. All I can say is, people should think twice before torrenting lol
