the malware came in the form of a game update. avast detects and blocks the virus but not before it deletes registry keys of the security center, firewall, defender, and few other stuff. I tried restoring the keys manually but cannot be sure 100% of all the stuff deleted. Had to do a repair install.

virus problems are normally posted in the virus and worms section   ;)

anyway run quick scan with this and post the log

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
always update so you have the latest signatures before you scan
click on the remove selected button to quarantine anything found

if you want a deeper check, then follow this guide and attach the logs
Essexboy will then have a look when he arrive tomorrow
