I noticed that several programs consumed large part of CPU at the task manager, even when I did nothing. I didn't recognize them. So I ran Malwarebytes and it found this Win32/Rovnix.gen!C!
The problem is, how can I find this thing? Are those programs I don't know related to this virus? Do I have to remove all of them to get the virus out completely? Any help will be appreciated!

It is a dangerous Trojan virus. The odd programs appearing on your computer may be brought in by this Torjan horse as it may open a backdoor without your knowledge.You can try to remove this virus in safe mode with networking where this virus will be disabled temporarily.

Crap! How do I do it exactly? I never did this before. Do forgive me for not being a geek! Thanks.

That's OK. Everyone got to learn something new, rigth? Reboot your computer and before the Windows sign shows up, keep tapping F8 repeatedly until advanced option screen shows. Choose Safe Mode with Networking with arrow key. When you are in Safe Mode, use the Malwarebytes to run a full scan and delete all infected files found by it.
