Downloaded Virus from This Site?

I need help. On Saturday I dowloaded from CNET Downloads what I thought was HJSplit. Apparantly it was not HJSplit but I have since come to find that it is something called Imminent or White Clould Search? There may be other names involved? Maybe these programs are covering for something else?
This has basically destroyed my computer or very near it. I can barely get anything to work. Everytime I restart the computer it's OK for about 2 minutes and then it basically just goes into a lock up mode.
When I was able to get to restore before a lock-up, Windows restore says it can't find any restore points? So restoring it seems as if it's not going to be possible. I don't have a restore on a disk.
I also was able to get to Malwarebytes and ran it, and it seemed to help, but basically I'm still only at what I would call 15% fixed.
Everything I have been able to do has only been after restarting and trying to do something before the freeze up, so I have restarted umpteen times.
What else can I do, what should I do?
