    hello! i dont know a lot about computers so please bare with me. i downloaded what im assuming is a virus of some sort. i use malwarebytes for virus protection but it didnt catch it i guess? the virus is playing ads in the background and i can see it in my task manager but malwarebytes and windows defender arent detecting it as a threat. i can see that it's making a bunch of temp files so every time i put it in the recycling bin it does pretty much nothing. ive done offline scans and full scans and its still not being detected. if you need anymore information just ask. really want to deal with
