Nasty Virus I've Contracted

I seem to have contracted a nasty virus all of a sudden. While searching in google I noticed avast sending dozens of JS : Decode-ASH[Trj] & JS : Redirector[Trj] notifications at me.

Ran a malwarebytes scan and it showed nothing. Ran a full avast scan and it froze at 0% but still returned 361 infected files almost all with JS : Decode-ASH[Trj] & JS : Redirector[Trj].

I had to run the scan about 4x just to not get bricked by windows 8's annoying BSOD that has been hitting this laptop since it was new.

Anyway this virus does not let me open regedit, taskmanager, or install anything new.

I recieve: tskmanager.exe not found, regedit.exe not found, and upon opening installations I get "ShellExecuteEx failed code 2; not found"

Im running windows 8 on an acer laptop.

Does anyone know what I should do? I've got so much work stuff on this computer I'm trying to avoid reformatting -- I also don't have the windows 8 install disc as this laptop was a custom built present.

oh and "sfc scannow" seems to just blink but not actually load up.

You can also try Housecall from Trendmicro:

It doesn't require installation as it's a manual scanner, it can clean up your PC but is not for active prevention.
