A few days ago, I noticed a new program I didnt install onto my laptop called Malware Doctor. My webpages were being redirected and pop-ups appeared out of no where. I tried a System Restore back to an earlier date before the infection, but that did no good. I managed to download MalwareBytes with my desktop and used a USB drive to install it onto my laptop. I did a quick scan and it removed a ton of nasty infections. However, my laptop is still acting strangely, with AIM not being able to start up and pop-ups still appearing. Suspicious, I started a full system scan. After thirty minutes of scanning, it wasnt done and showed 2 infected items. Before the scan finishes, the laptop gets a blue screen and restarts. This has happened twice.

If anyone can help, or needs additional information, please post down below.

Ive followed that guide, but as I stated it gives me a bluescreen half way through a Full Scan. The bluescreen says


Ive checked for the associated registries and files and found nothing. Since the Full Scan only causes a blue screen, I tried the Quick Scan, which found nothing.

Any help on this?
