First, please break the active link to a suspect site, change the https:// to hxxps://.

Launcher Infection probably - Malware.HighConfidence, malware posing as being legit.

See: https://www.virustotal.com/#/domain/cgg.peakexc.com

As DavidR says, provide a qualified remover here with demanded for logs,
so he can guide you through the malware removal step by step.

Hi Be Secure,

Tested this bootstrap javascript file as HTML file inside beaker browser and it created an endless loop starting any YouTube file (starting over and over again). Then scanned it at VT and it was not detected: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/1b33e1f12cd0f22d2d913365be2a2518cc8d77ffac384b606251e810615699c1/details
Is it unicode going under the detection radar...
