Hi, my computer's been affected by some sort of malware called Diamondata. Little scrolls with "shopping offers" will pop up in the top right corner of the screen, many words on websites have become hotlinks to spam websites, and sometimes when I click a link I'll be redirected to other spam websites.


I'm not entirely sure it's related, but when I'm watching youtube videos, every five seconds or so the video will stop for a second or two while the audio continues playing then jump to catch up with the audio, meaning it skips those parts of the video. Finally, when I use my keyboard to scroll down a page, the scroll bar tends to stop at intervals for no reason then start moving again, another skippy thing.


Thanks for any help.
