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.

While I am aware the of the virtue of patience, it is important I have a working computer immediately. I am going to reformat. Thanks for the potential help, anyway! :thumbsup: (I have have this big AP Bio lab due Friday, which needs a computer, and I can't lose time by trying to fix this thing.)
