The best way to get rid of any malware or similar things is always to create a new partition table on your PC & install the OS from scratch. It is the fastest & safest option, since after the process you should really end up with a clean system.

Remember that Windoze 7 is no longer supported by M$, you don't get new & important security updates or patches, & such an unsupported OS should never be connected to the LAN or internet, If you do use such an OS it should be used as a single PC so it can't get infected without the user's own intention.

I suggest you install Windoze 10 on that PC, the free upgrade option may still work (it worked about one year ago when I did that last), or you could install a free Linux Distro...
in case you want to upgrade to windows 10, here's the free  option described
