Malware doesn't infect the BIOS, it infects the OS. Did you do a Google search on how to remove it?

Also, install CCleaner-Slim & use it regularly:

And you might wanna install Malwarebytes Free & run a full scan from Safe Mode (after updating it):

Run both of these, in this order. It will take at least 5 steps to clean the comp.

1: Run AdwCleaner

Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Clean.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.

Download Junkware Removal Tool to your Desktop.
Warning! Once the scan is complete JRT will shut down your browser with NO warning.
Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
Temporarily disable your antivirus and any antispyware real time protection before performing a scan.

Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7/8, right-click JRT and select Run as Administrator.
The tool will open and start scanning your system.
Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your Desktop and will automatically open.
Copy and Paste the contents of the JRT.txt log please.

My preference:
Run msconfig, go to Start Tab, uncheck that program and anything suspicious, Apply and restart the machine. During the restart tap F8 and choose Safe Mode with Networking. Install, Update, and run Malwarebytes. Run a Full scan. Remove all it finds. Update your antivirus program and run that also. If both find and remove something, run Malwarebytes again. Restart in normal mode.
Go to Control Panel>Programs and make sure that nothing is there that should not be, uninstall if needed (Google anything if needed).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
