Specs: Windows XP
i got a virus from here: (a fake facebook link that prompts you to update your flash player to view a video) that is redirecting search engine links to ads like "shopica" & "toseeka". it also will run random pop-ups for the same sites.

I've read some threads about people with the same problem and seen you guys work your magic, im totally clueless though.....please help!

i also havent used my laptop since, worried that the virus might damage some of my it safe to use?
