This is a major infection if you are infected with about blank.
A good cleaning will probably require a HJT Log, you will find the instructions for posting a HJT Log at the bottom of my post follow them closely.

Have you tried a complete cleaning to see if that helps?

After doing this and the problems are not better feel free to post a HJT log.

Please read the tutorial, it will provide the instructions and links to download HJT along with the necessary steps to put it in the correct folder, this is important for the backup logs to be stored in a safe place.
