You really need to give Linux a go, it really will stop this rubbish once and for all.

You could try booting into safe mode abs roll back to previous system restore point. That will get rida of anything installed since that restore point. Then run malwarebytes and scan the machine. Free version should suffice.

Hi. Something similar happened to me some 5 years ago. The way I solved it was by contacting my virus/malware protector who were great but it did take a while and several calls all of which were toll-free. The more extreme solution is to buy another laptop. Good luck.
