    Did the safe mode thing..after I updated malwarebytes...but left out the networking , just safe mode and it worked...but the folder it was in is still there along with a bunch of other folders that are unfamiliar.

    Run through each step as described. Each step has a purpose. If it's malware, they will catch it. If they don't, it's not malware, and you can do with it as you please.
