Download and install a free anti virus and scan your system. Then do the same with Malwarebytes.

What did you scan with as the time difference between our two posts is nowhere near enough time for two full scans!

I tried scanning and stuff like that before posting this here. Internet surfing, u know. I couldn't find fix for it in Internet and basic stuff that everyone knows (virus scanning etc) i've already done.
