Been hacked through download ?

So I tried downloading overwatch through a torrent that sized 400mb and it sounded sketch but it had the most seeds and I thought (Maybe it’s 400 because there’s an installer along with that..?) so I downloaded it. Long story short my utorrent froze but I fixed it, a **** ton of pop up command boxes popped up when I Installed the installer and there was porn everywhere. Folders and folders. Also 12k files were added after the pop up boxes appeared and they all contain information of the programs that I have. Help me Im honestly scared. I tried deleted the folders but they keep saying they’re opened somewhere, I tried checking where (itorrent, task manager) but no luck. I’m currently now attempting to do a full computer scan on firewall but so far on my quick scan it said there’s nothing. I taped my camera just in case but I need help on deleting these files ASAP

    Restart your PC and check again. Clean your hard drive with the free CCleaner or free Wise Care 365. Run your AV afterwards.

    Scanning with your firewall will serve absolutely no use, my friend.  You need to run Antivirus and Antimalware products.  (Do this in Safe Mode as when you boot up your computer various programs/applications will start up immediately.)

    Reset your computer to factory mode. It will delete everything
