Antimalware doctor leads to BSOD

Hi all,

this morning my notebook was infected with Antimalware doctor.

Computer showed the usual malware screens and after a few seconds it autorebooted. Unless i forced it to safe mode, it continued to show it and reboot.

On safe mode i activated a full sweep with Webroot Internet Security Essentials. It did find the malware and removed it.

On next reboot, the malware apparently disappeared, no more malware screens and the fake antivirus program didn't show up anymore in Program -> Files and on Install / Uninstall panel. Problem is that since removal a BSOD appears (IRQL_not_less_or_equal) and computer reboots. Blue screen appears almost after all programs set to launch at reboot are loaded and if i'm right at the time where internet connection should be activated.

BTW I also scanned computer with malwarebyte's antimalware as suggested but it did find the computer clean. Finally i runned a registry fix program but nothing has changed.

Thanks in advance for any help.
