Can a hacker get access to your social media accounts without even logging in?

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this.

I installed a virus on my PC yesterday and Chrome started opening some pages, computer rebooted and can no longer update my Windows.

Yesterday evening someone from Canada got access to my Facebook account.

I then installed Malwarebytes and Bitdefender, fully scanned with both of them one after the other and deleted MANY new .exe files and also other files from my Windows C:/ drive.

But today someone from Amsterdam got access to my Instagram. I know it might be the same person using a VPN, but the question is wether or not the antiviruses scans yesterday were efficient.

How did these logins happen if I have 2 factor authentification to all my accounts and I haven’t been notified in any way? This guy even made 2 posts on my Instagram today to advertise some products.

Is it possible that this person now has access to other accounts of mine?

What kind of virus is this?

Thank you very much.
