hello and welcome to geekstogo,
Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

You can disable devices you are not using in the Device Manager
Control Panel> System> Hardware> Device Mgr

You can also shut off the auto restart function.
Control Panel> System> Advanced> Start Up and Recovery Settings

If the computer blue screens, post the exact error message here.
