Hey, i today i was using my computer normally like i do everyday. However later i noticed that i cant open Google chrome browser. So i started investigating the issue and seems like i have some kind of virus on my PC. Whenever i try to install any antivirus programs, then it just crashes at some point or wont even start, giving errors. I have no idea what should i do now. I tried a program called RKill, this program tries to stop the virus so i could scan my PC with antivirus. Seems like it didnt work that good.

Win 10.
 

2.5. Pull the drive out and attach it to another computer with a working system. Run an antivirus scan on the drive from that computer.

I reinstalled, formatted disk, still seems to exist, i think theres broken registry files, i scanned my PC with avast and it says i have broken registry files. Malwarebytes did not find anything.

A "new" OS install won't have broken reg entries.

Well, i literally installed new windows and formatted my disk like 4 hours ago. For some reason i cant get some windows updates, gives error codes. Also i have 2 hard disks, is it possible that the virus is on my second hard drive? 1TB space, its gonna take ages to scan it.
