Blue screen and redirect

Recommended Posts

I recently downloaded Internet Explorer verson 9 and shortly afterward my computer started getting a blue screen when I accessed the internet. I started using Firefox, but it doesn't help, plus it downloads a bunch of extraneous screens whenever I click on a link. I can get on facebook pretty consistenly with minimal problems, but accessing my email account on aol and other functions get the blue screen almost immediately. I'm on a different computer because I can't access this website on the infected computer.

The infected computer runs on Vista, and I've had a problem running antimalwarebytes in the past (something about the administrator), plus when I run Hijack This it gives instructions for "running as administrator" but that option doesn't come up when I right click, so I'm not sure if it's a full scan.

As a side note I've had a problem with a google redirect virus for some time, but I've just sidestepped it by typing in the links manually. Any tips for getting rid of that will be appreciated.
