Been getting lots of random app installs ever since I installed windows 10 technical preview a couple days ago. Until that I'd been fine since, well, forever. But now recently I'm getting lots of random apps installed without my even download/torrenting or what have you.

stuff like active deals, sharkwords etc

Ran malwarebytes, and it detected them. Found 109 items, quarentined and removed. Reboot, they're still on my browser and such. Downloaded bitdefender. It detected nothing. Now I have panda running a scan as I type. 0 threats blocked.

Any suggestions? I've tried uninstalling these via control panel. I've tried deleting the extensions on chrome. Not sure what else to do

There are different ways to remove each "problem" - they can be extensions installed in your browser that does this - other times they are actual programs that are put into the registry....If you have multiple infections - it may take some work to remove all of them.
