So i've got this virus / malware / ransomware (?) running on the background.

I noticed it when I was randomly right clicking on my desktop that has nothing but Wallpaper Engine and the text cursor was popping up and the right click wasn't popping. I decided to try and put a black background and found it so I went on photoshop and using Threshold I got what it looks like. Does anyone have any idea of what it is and / or what it does? It also prevents the Task Manager from being opened to find out what it is. Once it runs, if you have TM running, it'll close it.

I full scanned with Microsoft Security and Avast and got to no conclusions. Would like to try avoiding formatting but might be the only option here.

Thanks in advance.

Did not work... Tried multiple methods of scanning the computer but ended up having to format to get rid of it as nothing found the issue.
