Specs: Windows 7, compaq
i was recently fooling around with some torrents from iptorrent and downloads from mega upload and my computer had been acting very weird lately. before i begin im not amazing with computers i would call myself slightly above average. so fist i noticed i think i might have a virus because the first thing that happened was some of my icons were being high lighted when i wasn't doing anything, after that when i got home from school my background had been changed from my picture of Steve Prefontaine to the Compaq background. also my computer has been running very slow. there are error messages that pop up frequently that say "error 5: then something i forget. I then downloaded the free version of avast and i have been running continuous scans for awhile now at first it said it found viruses but now it doesn't find any but weird stuff is still happening. im in desperate need of help. if there are any ways i can get out of this please help because i do not want to have to tell my dad i got a virus, not that i was on anything bad but he will still be very mad to have to wipe the hard drive.

You are for sure infected & it can take a long time to clean it up.
