Accidentally downloaded an update for adobe flash. Moments later, Bytefence installed itself onto my laptop, as well as an app called 'weatherbuddy'. My browser was also hijacked by Palikan. Finally, I was able to restore my default browser and I installed Malwarebytes and ESET. Both had found and deleted files relating to these apps, but they are still running in the background and appear on my taskbar icon tray but cannot be found in the control panel. Thanks for your help!
