I randomly got a virus from a Russian site, it opens tons of tabs and advertisements in chrome and firefox, sometimes command prompt pops up, lots of unknown processes running, installed a bunch of random extensions in chrome and changed default search engine. Also added some random shortcuts to my desktop. Some kind of search engine and application under the name "Mail.ru" were added to my computer and while I uninstalled a russian application sharing the name from control panel, the problem still remains and I have no clue how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated it's very annoying and I'd like to use my computer again.

Let me know if you can help or if you have any questions.
