I got the Search Safer Inc malware after my professor for my masters course instructed us to view a video at a sketchy website. So I did an online search and found your post on removing this (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/531978/serviceexe-by-search-safer-inc-prompt/)
This worked, thankfully, however, ever since then I have noticed a few problems. My Kindle app crashes and reloading it doesn't help. There's another reading app that crashes and I've also noticed a problem with opening .pfd files in internet explorer.
Any ideas on how I hurt my computer?
P.s. I'm running Windows 8.1 on a Surface Pro
