Microsoft Security Essentials. Google it and then install. Remove AVG free. Also, you should get Malwarebytes from and use it to remove malware as well.

did you install the mother board firmware off the disc that comes with the board ? did you go to windows update and see what it has for your machine ? Did you try going into the device manager and update the drivers for everything...... especially for the intel 3000 video device ?
