So after eight hours of in vain attempts to remove the newest version of the Windows Security Center malware from my computer, it's finally gone. However, there seem to be some remaining problems associated with it or with the process of removing it.

1) The blue screen of death will somewhat frequently pop up, often for no apparent reason.

2) I still can't connect to the internet. About 75% of the times I open Google Chrome, Firefox, or (god forbid) Internet Explorer, they completely freeze my computer and I have to restart it.

To clarify, I'm almost certain that all of the malware is completely removed from my computer. I did several virus scans using Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes (which I have since removed from my computer) and I've deleted everything related to the problem. I don't know if it's relevant, but after I removed everything I still wasn't able to access my task manager... that problem has since been fixed, though.

I don't think there are any other symptoms. Any other info I need to provide? Help!
