Damn its really hard to type serious business on an iPad. Please pardon missing commas, etc.

Okay so sometime between friday and today something got in to my computer (Win7) or activated on my computer... I havent really been at it until this morning. I finally was able to get a full scan done on Microsoft Home Essentials (its what it came with) and nothing was found. I was able to get a quickscan on Malwarebytes and it didnt find/remove anything of use. I tried to do a full scan but an hour or so in it froze and died again. I'm trying that again now. The moment I enable the wifi the comp lasts a few moments then the cursor moves but nothing else responds (I can tell when the clock stops advancing). Safe mode has things going a bit easier but doesnt get around the problem. I cant see anything in task manager because of the freezing. I can launch firefox when wifi is off but if I turn it on and go to a page, it chokes and the system freezes. IE doesnt even manage that. I dont have Chrome to see how it fares.

Can anyone help a frustrated student with suggestions? I've exhausted my own abilities :/

Thanks so much in advance!

I just got this problem on 2x Win7 and 2x Win8 machines today.


All happened within 1 hour. Works fine in safe mode but multiple freezes in normal.
