Logging onto my Crunchyroll I'm greeted by this landing page and with an automatic download, I didn't think much of it and let it download, ran it and installed it thinking it was what it described, only to find out that it doesn't do anything after executing it. I am now 99% sure that it's a fake and I installed malware or a virus..

Now clicking on another tab will trigger a "page not found 404" error. the only way I could get around it is to refresh, cancel the refresh and then refresh again. It was a struggle just to get to the forums..

Any tips on getting rid of whatever I just installed? I have restarted my PC and checked windows processes - nothing, scanned my PC with BitDefender - still nothing.

Hope this at least serves as a warning to other users and hope to hear from someone,

Thanks

When I tried loading it, my anti-virus kicked it out as unsafe automatically.

ibb.co/eNiiyG - Page error

Yes I think my antivirus picked it up, however now Crunchyroll is pretty much unusable on my browser, I can't go anywhere or really click on anything without it spamming me with downloads and blocking access to the rest of the site. I can't connect through my android app either but I'm not too sure whether it's got anything to do with all this.

Do not install the file under any circumstances. It seems to be ransomware. It is not being served from our infrastructure.
