Help removing this virus please!
Hello everyone. Recently while using a P2P downloader, I seem to have acquired a virus while downloading. I am using Windows Vista. In Opera, Google always redirects me to another website when I click a link. In addition, I got the blue screen a few times, and when I try to turn on my computer, it often shuts on and off multiple times before starting up. Recently I have been getting messages that tell me that an error has occurred and my system will shut off in 1 minute.
Thanks in advance!

You definetely have a Virus. . Here's what to do:
1) Check to see if the virus hijacked your Browsers, make sure they are not using any proxies but visiting the network setup section. If they are, change them to none.
2) Check your DNS. This may of been changed to a malicious server that is logging all your request. If it is, change them to your ISP's, Google DNS, and or OpenDNS.
3) Run a MalwareBytes scan ,this will remove the virus hopefully.
Best of Luck!
