Well, I have already used Malwarebytes and Avast antivirus hence my saying of 90% sure that I got rid of it. I don't feel like anyone has taken control of my system or stolen anything yet but this Cortana thing just happens randomly and I don't know if the virus is back or not.
Does anyone get random Cortana popups with even more random questions when you don't ask for it or you're nowhere near the Cortana button? This has been happening since three weeks ago and it occurs about twice a week. I'm 90% sure that I've gotten a trojan horse like three months ago but I've believed that I removed it. If it is a trojan horse issue, does anyone know how to completely remove it without resetting your system? I'm using an Acer Nitro 5 AN515-53.
