So just yesterday I was on facebook, and I noticed someone posted a link on my wall. I was doing many other things, so without thinking too much on it I clicked it, and it said I needed to update Adobe Flash. Ok, sure, why not? So after I downloaded 'it,' the flash player would not seem to install.. So then I went back and tried to update it again. After trying to do this a couple times, I notice that my computer is acting up. Then, as I go on facebook, I realized the link my friend sent was some automatic link that forced him to send it because he
got a virus. To make matters worse, the link was somehow sent to all of my friends by me. So now besides having my computer infected, I have to explain to a bunch of people why "I" sent that same link.
The obvious problem showing now is that all google searches redirect to some unrelated ad/site. Also, I cannot yet log back into my account on FB, I need to do some sort of 'verifying' which will be done later after this is all sorted..
So any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, I ran malwarebytes, but the problems only seem to partly go away (still redirect issues) for the time my computer is on. After it's reset, it acts up all over again.
