    Whatever you downloaded was full of malware. You need to download a program called MalwareBytes and run it on your infected PC. Let it delete everything it finds, reboot, and you should be fine

    Probably fake alerts. Run your AV program. Don't believe fake bsod screens. Let the AV program run to completion.

    I suggest your consider Malware Removal Procedure

    Re-read post. Task Manager is disabled - expert help is needed. A second computer may create copies of needed programs to be loaded on the infested computer.
