    Do you, or did you, have some kind of program installed with "Conduit" in the name?

    Conduit cloud service by chance?

    Run Task Manager and look for anything in the Startup tab with Conduit in it. Right click, then disable it. Log out/in or reboot.

    Yes, that was going to be the next step. I would run Malwarebytes.

    After Malwarebytes, run an elevated cmd.exe and do a sfc /scannow. It will take awhile. Let us now if it reports errors that can't be fixed.
