Hi, I was an idiot and trusted shady software, I believe I have gotten the majority of it off of my computer, Malewarebytes finds noting and I uninstalled everything I know I didn't install from the add/remove software panel on windows. However, now CMD opens at random intervals, I close it before it does anything, but can someone please tell me how to get it to stop? Thanks

CMD pop-up doesn't always mean a malware infection, but if you think it exists in correlation with an ambiguous software you've installed, then you can download and run Emsisoft Emergency Kit (EEK) and Zemana Antimalware.
Then you can post here a screenshot of the detections if there are.

Hi thanks for helping, EEK found 12 files, and I cant use Zemana right now as I have ran out of the free trial. I also got a screen shot of what CMD does when it opens. Should I quaratine or remove those files?

Hello :)
My advice is to move to quarantine all the objects.
Especially "Trojan LNK" and "v8auivdyI7.exe" because some LNK malware will also open the CMD and execute malicious scripts in the background at the same time.
Not sure you can definitely delete the trojan because some samples of this type are deep-rooted in the system.
In this case you would need specific assistance.
