Hello there :welcome
 
Programs such as BitTorrent and uTorrent can mostly be the cause of why your system is infected.
 
Step One:
Download and run Mini Tool Box

  • Click here to download MiniToolBox to your desktop.
  • Double click MiniToolBox.
  • Select the following and then press go.
  • Post the log in your next reply.

Flush DNS
Reset IE Proxy Settings
Reset FF Proxy Settings
List Installed Programs
List Restore Points
 
Step Two:
Install and run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

  • Click here to download Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  • Double click mbam-setup-x.x.x.xxxx and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • On the dashboard, click update now.
  • After that, click scan now - the scan will now begin.
  • When the scan's completed, select apply actions - make sure the action is quarantine.
  • Restart your computer.

How to get the log.

  • On the dashboard, select the history tab and click application logs.
  • Select the log which has the time and date of when you did the scan.
  • Click copy to clipboard and paste it into your reply.

Step Three:
Download and run Security Check

  • Click here to download Security Check to your desktop.
  • Double click SecurityCheck and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • A log should open, called checkup.txt.
  • Please post the contents of it in your next reply.

No, torrent clients in and of themselves cannot cause these problems. Downloading .torrent files can however.

 

If you would like a different client, I recommend qbittorrent BUT (as with downloading any programs) remember to uncheck any additional offers (toolbars, etc...)!
