Hello neeko and welcome to Seven Forums.

I think I'd give System Restore a try if you have a restore point that goes back to a date/time prior to when the problem began. You may have to try in Safe Mode.

Safe Mode

System Restore

If you can do a System Restore I'd then run a full scan with the free Malwarebytes. You can download from the CNET site using the big grray button on the left that says Download Now (9MB).

Let us know if this helps or not. There are other things we can try.
