I installed a free game from a reputable website that I have used before and it apparently installed a whole bunch of adware and I have booted into safe mode and ran adwcleaner and malware bytes and it said it got rid of them but i booted on my computer to see a cmd window saying windows copied 2 files and was sending them somewhere. This Trojan has also disabled me to use ANY anti malware service unless I am in safe mode

Reformat and reinstall Windows. No matter what you do antivirus wise youll never be sure you got rid of it all.

1. Time for a full wipe and reinstall.

2. Whatever you did...don't do that again. Doesn't sound like a 'reputable' website to me.
