This question already has an answer here:

I got the malware zooarm on my system, and it has changed my Google Chrome folder path to this:

Executable Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Zooarm\Application\chrome.exe

Profile Path: C:\Users\Shaharyar\AppData\Local\Zooarm\User Data\Default

What problems or security issues can it cause me?

I am using Windows 10. It also stopped my Windows Defender, and I don't know how it got so many privileges to do such things.

If there's been a malware intrusion, chances are that they have elevated their privilege to administrator. If so, then you should probably think about reinstalling Windows rather than removing the malware, as its hard and toilsome to measure the impact of the malware on your OS.
