My computer began to display some seriously distressing problems a couple days ago, First, explorer.exe began to crash frequently, then I began to blue screen, and blue screen a lot. It got to the point where I could no longer actually run my computer for more than a few minutes without it crashing. I managed to get it up long enough to run a virus scan (on Malwarebytes) and use CCleaner and it seemed to stop. Then, earlier today, it blue screened again, now I'm getting error messages when I try to open literally anything. They all follow the same pattern:


(Program).exe - Bad Image

C:\PROGRA~2\SEARCH~1\SEARCH~1\bin\VC32LO~1.DLL is either not
designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the
program again using the original installation media or contact your

system administrator or the software vendor for support.


I'm totally new to the website so if there is something I have missed in this post please let me know. There is a very similar post from last November here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/558098/infected-with-malware-note-sure-what-it-iscomputer-barely-running/


Thanks for your time, hopefully we can resolve this soon.
