Programs that have stopped working: battle.net, yugioh pro (online card game), firefox, nightly, viber

Google Chrome works, but something is creating randomly named folders in C:/ program files (x86) that contain all the chrome files and its freaking me out. I had the amlsites hijacker a while ago but removed it.

A few weeks ago, I had a bunch of programs randomly installed on my PC including some korean web browser and I ran malwarebytes and completely deleted all the quarantined files. When I restarted my computer, I noticed I couldn't open FIrefox at all, it would always insta-crash. So could it be that I actually damaged my registry?
Because there's random stuff on my PC I can't do. For example, if I right click on "PC" and click properties the screen just hangs forever. Or immediately after I ran malwarebytes, upon restarting the PC my "explorer.exe" wouldn't automatically start and the screen was black.

Please, is there anything I can do to see if it's indeed a virus or I indeed fudged up my registry? Is there a way to like set your registry back to default?

I will provide more info if asked.

Hey Tagforcer09,

Disable your internet connection but leave your firewall turned on.

Download the following tools and run them in order;

First you need RKill, it should end most malware processes so they can't defend or hide them self against/from a scan.

To make sure you don't have any nasty Rootkits, download Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit and do a scan its FREE.

Download Malwarebytes ADWCleaner (Its Free - Acts as a very good adware cleaner)

https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

Download Malwarebytes Junkware Removal Tool (Its Free - Removes Junkware from browsers, shortcuts, etc.)

https://www.malwarebytes.com/junkwareremovaltool/

Download HerdProtect (Its Free - Acts as a great malware, virus, etc scanner. This requires an internet connection so run this scan LAST)

http://www.herdprotect.com/downloads.aspx

Then as you already have it run a malwarebytes scan to finish up, reboot your PC and see how you go.

Hope this helps :)

If this removes the malware and you still cannot access the internet, disable your firewall and check. Something may have added a rule blocking outbound connections.
