A few days ago i installed something i shouldn't, and a lot of programs were installed, and my web browser settings changed. Fortunately with the help of Zemana Antimalware i removed most of them, but i have found problems with Svchost. when i search for Antivirus software on google, or i run any antimalware programs i have, they freeze, and task manager says they are suspended. I have searched online and most say to delete svchost outside of system 32, but all the svchost.exe are coming from the one exe file. I have no idea what to do and im terrified my details are being stolen, can anyone help please? I don't know what to provide so ask if you need more info

I had something like that years ago, it was not svchost it was something that made that come up. Unfortunately I can not recall the details. It ended up not a virus it was malware/etc. Also do a cleanup they can hide stuff in startup or internet files that comes back even though it may be harmless.

put antiviruses on a usb, boot into safe mode, plug it in, run the antivirus softwares. if it doesnt work, backup, or reinstall ur os after extracting ur files.

if you can't get anything else working, backup only those files you know are completely safe onto a portable hdd or usb stick. wipe the entire hard-drive, reformat it, and then do a clean install of windows.
