Try Malwarebytes in Safe Mode, or one of the other Bootable AV's given. Some of these can also rescue your files, or there is a step for that if necessary.

I would verify this with one bootable AV scan. If clean or you wish to skip this you can move on to the next steps in order. Keep us posted on results.
