Running a Windows 8 Dell PC purchased in ..April, I think? So really shouldn't be having problems this soon. I seem to have the worst luck.

 

Anyway, on 7/6/2013 I tried to network my computer to play Baldur's Gate (with a computer on my LAN). I believe this is when I picked up the (Adware.TryMedia). The only programs I installed on my computer were Hamachi. Removed them, as they didn't work for me anyway. Anywho, I don't know if I got this from a website I was at or those programs. But the other computer I networked with is clean and my computer was fine until I set it to hibernate and went to sleep for the night. Next day, internet browsers are not working. Networking is no longer working. First thing I did was scan my computer with Kaspersky Pure 3.0 and Malwarebytes. Kasperskery came up clean, Malwarebytes found "Registry Keys Detected: 1 HKCU\SOFTWARE\Trymedia Systems (Adware.TryMedia)". So I removed it. But my internet browsers and networking capabilites were still not working. So I did a system restore to 7/6/2013 before I installed one of the hamachi's too see if it would still be there. Unfortunately, it was. Found and removed it again with Malwarebytes. However, at least my browsers are working now. So I guess it's at least before the virus could do whatever damage it did last night while I was sleeping. So everything seems good. According to Malwarebytes the malicious program is gone (did a full scan, came up clean) and my browsers are running (though I haven't tried networking yet, as in order to network successfully yesterday I had to turn off my firewall. Not doing that until I'm sure this problem is gone!) but I'm feeling super paranoid and I really want to make sure this thing is taken care of, especially since it was in my registry keys. So...how can I make sure it's gone, and that any damage has been repaired?
