For a while it has only been a mild inconvenience causing me to have to copy and paste the website into my address bar, but now it has begun giving me other viruses and malware to deal with such as the "Windows XP Security 2012" or something to that effect. I have used RKill to stop anything from loading and attacking my system then I use Malwarebytes to try and delete the virus. Rarely does it come up emptyhanded, most of the time it gets anywhere from 2 to 20 infected files, which I then proceed to delete and quarantine. After using Malwarebytes, I use Spyware Terminator to look for anything it may have missed, it only finds 2 to 10 infected files, which I then delete.
This has been something I have had to do every couple of days just to be able to do anything at all on my computer.
When whatever virus I have isn't causing all that hell, it is making my computer shut down after using it for longer than 20 minutes at a time. At least, I think it's the virus doing that. I may have another problem altogether there.
Please help me, I cant afford another computer at the moment and I need this one to work properly.
