I think I have some virus that keeps executing nslookup. It eats up my system resources like crazy. The virus also started adding exclusions from windows defender(see image) and every time I try to remove them they get added back moments later, this makes it pretty hard to do scans for viruses and such, any help guys???
**UPDATE**
I just ran a new antivirus and removed all the malware, is there anything I should be worried about or am I good now?

Hello, Welcome to MalwareTips..! :)

I suggest we check ..! :) Please follow the following instruction ..:

Download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop. --> IMPORTANT

If your antivirus software detects the tool as malicious, it’s safe to allow FRST to run. It is a false-positive detection.
If English is not your primary language, right click on FRST.exe/FRST64.exe and rename to FRSTEnglish.exe/FRST64English.exe

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.
  • Double-click the FRST icon to run the tool. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button and wait for a while.
  • The scanner will produced two logs on your Desktop: FRST.txt and Addition.txt.
  • Please attach the content of these two logs in your next reply.
---------------------------------------------------

In your next reply, please include:
  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt
