  Computer constantly freezes.

I have a HP-Pavilion Elite and it is running on Vista HomePremium (64 bit). Just a little background, I've had my computer for less than 2 years, A couple of months ago I went to a website I usully go to and got a virus. I went to best buy and paid for them to remove it, and after that it worked fine. At this point I had no clue the website had caused it, i thought it was a different website. I went back to the website and got the virus again. I didnt want to pay about 200 dollars to get the virus removed so I looked it up and did it myself....It seems since then it has been freezing but I can't find any proof that I didnt get the virus off. OKAY now to my problem. My computer starts up fine.Right after start up if I get on the internet the website comes up without a problem but as soon as a type in a letter it freezes. This causes my whole computer to freeze. If I wait a couple of minutes and then get on the internet it's fine. (I know this sounds like it's just my computer warming up but it has never done this before.) To make matters worse, I will wait when the computer freezes I try to right click it and close it. Sometimes the 'Not Responding-Close' will come up and when I click to close it nothing ever happens. I try to bring up the task manager to close it and it won't even come up. I sit there waiting for it to work and sometimes it will recover after a little pop up "Super Anti Spyware" comes up. (I downloaded this to make sure that all of the virus was off). That used to be the end of the problem but now I can open the internet and when i got to around two websites it freezes, I can't get it to close, the antispyware has already turned on, and I can wait for 30 minutes and it never works again. I have to completely restart my computer and it's getting very frustrated. Can someone please help? If you need me to make any thing clear or need more information about my computer let me know.

You have an HP so you should have a system recovery CD/DVD so back up your documents, pictures, music etc to a USB flash drive or CD-R's and just use the recovery disc's to set the system back to its factory defaults... It will reformat your hard drive, re-install all the software that came with it (not that thats a good thing but its better than a virus... most of the time :) ) Anyway, thats my suggestion.

Core i7 4770K @ 4.4GHz | Corsair H110 | Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H | 32GB 1866MHz Corsair Vengeance
2x EVGA GTX 780 SLI | 256GB OCZ Vector SSD | 4TB Hitachi 7K4000
