First of all, I want to say, LOVE your website! Has helped me "self-diagnose" and fix many problems over the years.
Okay, it started back in September of 2012. I got the blue screen of death which gave me the blue screen, continual rebooting, errors, hidden files and the works. I came to bleeping who introduced me to the steps to rid the S.M.A.R.T. HDD Virus. The steps were easy and seemed to work like a charm to return most of my "lost"/hidden files and stop the blue screen.
BUT, since then, there have been many new symptoms and they are getting worse. I don't know if they are related to each other or if my computer has received may different virues. Don't even know where to start. Here goes:

- When I google and it brings up results, when I click a link, sometimes it takes me to a competely different page.
- I use Outlook with a gmail address. Twice (that I know of), my email has been hijacked and it has sent out messages to all of my contacts. Here are the two:

- Some websites won't even load anymore incuding evite and shutterfy photo upload. The thinking circle just goes around and around and never brings up my page.
Can you help me?! I'm at my wit's end and embarrassed as I hope I'm not sending STDs (System Transmitted Diseases) to my friends and need to get my computer back to functioning mode.
