How can I get rid of this computer virus?

It keeps opening browser windows. 30+. No antivirus can detect it. Clean install doesn’t work either. It keeps coming back.

    Try using ADWCleaner. Might be able to find the problem although it's designed for adware.

    You did not do a Clean Install. A clean install re-formats the Hard Drive and removes EVERYTHING.

      ACTUALLY, a clean install only does a "quick format" & can easily keep viruses or malware intact.

    If you are logged into the cloud and you sign back into it you'll put whatever virus or malware that was on it right back on your computer

    It’s not a virus. Start with a decent browser. I recommend firefox initially chrome is OK, chromium is OK. Opera is OK.

    Go into extensions on Firefox and add adblock plus. Also add ghostery. They should stop the majority of pop-up windows and all the crap and all the tracking.
