Virus sending everything Recycler [Closed]

Hello, my problem is similar to this: http://www.geekstogo...to-recycle-bin/

I changed my old PC to a new one (HP). I had Windows 10, Windows 10 Enterprise and now Windows 7.

And the problem is the same:

I click on anything, about 20 duplicate windows pop up confirming that I want to send the File or icon to the recycle bin. 
I open a notepad and the document begins deleting itself line by line.
Sometimes the problem vanishes...and when I reboot my PC once again appears.
I can't enter to my personal files because I'm afraid everything is going to be deleted.


I run Malwarebytes, CCleaner, TrojanRemover, HitmanPro, Eset Online Scanner, Kaspersky, Avast Licensed and the problem is not solved. Please Help!

Hello, and welcome to logo.png
My name is Joeicam :), you can call me Joe, and I will be assisting you every step of the way.
Please Note: I am still in training and my fixes have to be approved by my instructor so there may be a slight delay in my replies. Look upon it as a good thing though in that you have two people looking at your problem. 
If you have any questions or comments, or aren't quite sure about what to do, STOP AND ASK.
Before we begin, please familiarize yourself with the following:
  • Back up your files and folders, as sometimes malware infections can be severe. It's a good habit to plan for the worst.
  • Please follow my instructions exactly, and do not repeat any steps more than once, unless instructed.
  • Copy/Paste entire contents of your logs, and submit inside your post, instead of submitting as an attachment, unless told otherwise.
  • If you have since resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please inform me so that this topic can be closed.
  • As malware removal can be a complicated, multistep process, you should stick with me until I declare your system to be clean of all threats. It may seem like your system is running properly, but that does not mean that the infection is completely gone.
  • You must reply to this post within four days, if you do not, then the topic will be closed.
  • However, if you need more time to run the tools and fixes, or would like your topic to be reopened, please PM me or any Moderator to reactivate your topic.
If I have not responded to your post within 24 hours, then send me a private message (PM).
Otherwise, all communication is done in the forums.
Let's get to work! :)
The fixes presented are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issue on this machine!
Step 1 of 1: FRST Scan
Everything gets downloaded to the desktop and tools are "Run as administrator."
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is ran from.
  • Please copy and paste the log in your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run it generates another log - Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST. Please also copy and paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.
