Hello people, 
Yesterday I downloaded Java to be able to play a game, but what I didn't expect was that this seemed to be a virus, it had some toolbar with it and my computer was running slow after I installed Java. I didn't think much more about it and started to play the game, and suddenly my computer crashed. It wasn't a bluescreen it was looking like different random lines and objects (much like a graphic card burn).
 
But I never had this problem before so I was wondering if this was my graphic card which is broken or if it's that Java program which infected my system. 
 
Any idea of how I can fix this? 
 
Any help is appreciated!
