Windows 10, Home Clean Install

You could read and try what is indicated in this tutorial
Gadgets - Restore Default Gadgets

If that does not work you can try and sfc scan
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Run 3 times if errors are found.

If that does not work a system restore from, at least, a few days before the virus.
