Solved Multiple COM surrogate processes and anothers

So I downloaded a fake keygen to activate a plugin that involved in add some lines at my host file, after that my computer got slow, so I realized I had a malware. Then I formated my computer 2 times to make sure it was deleted (Delete and format the disc C:), after that when the Windows was ready to use I opened the task manager and some iffy tasks were there so I activated hidden folders and made a clean up by search each folder or file.

Also I made a scan with HitmanPro, Malwarebytes, Multi Virus Cleaner kaspersky and Spyhunter 5, none of them found any infected files, so I formated again, this time on the Task manager I have CloudExperienceHostBroker at C:\Windows\System32 (I dont know if this is the location that is should be in), 3 COM Surrogate and 5 Runtime Broker.

Can you offer any suggestion on how to proceed?
Thanks for your understanding,
Andrew

I don't see how after formatting and clean installation your computer could still be infected.
Those processes you mentioned are perfectly legit.
For instance, at the moment I have 2 COM Surrogate and 5 Runtime Broker processes running.

I was thinking that I had to put here an entry from a anti-virus scan etc, but since everything is fine I appreciate your help and time.
Thank you!
