Accidentally downloaded the known virus program MPC cleaner. I uninstalled it straight away, but it still opens a web page every time I open Chrome, and today the shortcuts to the program reappeared on my desktop. The program isn't in the Programs and Features list so i can't uninstall that way. It's running in the background as Task Manager shows, but I can't End Task. The folder (located in Program Files x86) won't delete; it says it requires administrator permission to delete. I right-clicked and went to "Security" tab and gave full control to everything but it still says it requires admin.
Sorry for late response, and thank you all for suggestions
ADWCleaner recognised the files but couldn't delete them.
Malwarebyte seems to have removed the program files successfully, but the MPC site still opens upon launching Chrome. I can't find any solution within Chrome's settings.
