Alright, so I'm gonna be honest here, I picked up some bloody annoying virus downloading a pirated copy of DvdFab. It's the last time I download pirated stuff, that's for sure. All I wanted to do was make a copy of some movie I had rented; but anyways, that's besides the point.

After installing the program, I used some sort of patching program to patch DvdFab so I could skip the screen where it asks to buy/register that sorta thing. Using the patcher, I got infected with this virus. Not sure what the name of the virus is.

Ever since then, my computer has been running slowly/awkwardly (you know how it runs when there's evil viruses messing around with your beloved computer.) I thought I could use my system restore dvd to erase everything and get my computer back to how it was when I bought it. So I performed the system restore (which is supposed to bring my computer back to factory settings) and, well, the virus is still infecting my computer.

This virus of course slows down my computer, makes it run awkwardly. The internet is slow, and the default homepage (Google) just keeps redirecting between google.com and google.ca until Firefox stops redirecting. Essentially the browser is having a bit of trouble with some sites. Sometimes strange messages show up on my desktop. I have Trend Micro Internet Security (well, at least a free trial of it) and Trend Micro doesnt want to connect to the internet to download updates, even though I can somewhat browse the internet using Firefox or IE (although IE is having more problems than Firefox; for one, IE's search engine has been noticeably hijacked. When searching to download Firefox, I had in the main results page various random sites, and not even the actual Firefox download page.)

I'm hoping you guys can help me out with this one, I neeeeeed to remove this virus asap.
