    There is something in my PC, a Virus for sure, that opens pages on internet and i bet there is some more virus, and i need a good anti-virus to clean that out from my PC, can someone suggest one? i use the standard Microsoft Security Essentials.

    AVG, Avast, Comodo, BitDefender all decent all free. I would suggest Avast, of the ones listed had the highest ranking in 2014.

    You can also use one or two online scanners first, do one initial sweep of the system before installing an ativirus and firewall of your choosing. F-Secure, Eset and quite a few others have good free online scanners.

    P.S. Before installing a new antivirus/firewall please unistall Microsoft Security Essentials.

    I'd suggest booting to Windows using Safe Mode with Networking. Then download Malwarebytes and do a full scan. That should clean up the majority of the issues. Also check your installed programs in Add/Remove programs and see if anything new is installed. Things like Search Protect, Conduit, etc will cause issues like you're seeing. https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/

    Once you've run malwarebytes a few times and everything comes back clean, scan with http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

    I regularly find myself doing exactly what JMMD has suggested above on my boy's computer.

    Once you have a clean setup then create a restore point and put together a backup if you can

    You already hot some good replies. Just follow them and you'll be free of malware. As for av, I personally, after many years of testing, use Comodo av+firewall.

    Try Bootable antivirus CD it will remove all viruses from your system.
    MSN is better option but you need regular updated.

    Try the free version of MalwareBytes - I often use that to clear out junk when MSE has missed it.
