So today I got about 12 virus from a link, which was stupid of me but now i know. I disconnected my internet cord so nothing else could be downloaded. anyways I tried to run malwarebytes which was already installed on my computer so I click the shortcut, but it says that it cannot find the exe to start it. I also started to get popups saying my computer was at risk and all these fake antivirus programs could help me and what not. Then my desktop turned black except for the taskbar at the bottom so my computer was still functional.
eventually I thought of closing the explorer.exe and reopening it which brought my desktop back but I saw that some shortcuts were created and it looked like it was linking to porn sites. I have avira antivirus so I ran a scan and it only showed a couple of warnings so that was no help. I looked through my C drive looking for any files or folders that were created around 1 oclock which is when I first got the warnings. I found around 20 or more files in temp. folders or areas similar to it, things like installer.exe, the icons for the pornsites that were on my desktop. I deleted those and the popups stopped.
Once everthing seemed ok, I uninstalled malwarebites and restarted my computer, tried to reinstall it and when I check the "run malwarebites" at the end of the instalation, I get this error

Unable to execute file C:\etc\etc\mbam.exe
CreateProcess failed; Code 2
The System cannot find the file specified

, also since I restarted my computer I have gotten popups again but these ones are advertising newspaper websites with articles, one of then was even for google.

Also--I know that bittorrent is going to show up in the logfile but I have not used that in at least a year now

thankyou everyone for any help that you can provide.
