Have you tried downloading malwarebytes or spybot and running a full scan? It may just be something as simple as that that can clear the problem up.

Kk try this...

First things first..

1.) Download Malwarebytes and run a scan.
If the virus does not allow you do alot of basic computer operations download rkill.exe (google it) and it will allow you to run virus scans and such.

2.) When you go to different website does the address bar change to https?
If the s is there that means the virus changed your proxy settings. Go into internet explorer (this should fix google chrome as well) Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> Lan Settings the checkbox automaticly detect these settings should be checked not the proxy server checkbox.
