I AM listening to what you guys are saying
I just can't act immediately and I will be probably doing this tomorrow. It's very very late and I'm going to sleep soon, otherwise I won't think straight and do more harm than good.
I'll turn off the internet, and then call the ISP tomorrow and ask them to change my IP. Then I'll reset all router settings, wipe my system, change passwords, all that good stuff.
Now time for an update
I blocked all ports, the attacks seemed to stop.
I am now posting from my unaffected laptop, and it seems that the virus is not like a RAT, but rather a dumb clicker that will copy paste random stuff, because it's behavior is not human-like, which I thought of at first. It opens up random documents and occasionally right or left click. But I know that it's there.
Safe mode seems to be affected by the virus also.

First run Ccleaner
Then run superanti spyware
Then malware bytes
Spybot search and destroy
Fix your browser wit super anti spyware
Then update and scan with your av
After I install all that stuff, even assuming it's not crap, I'll have an old Windows install that could still be infected. I'm better off going to Ubuntu, going a 30+pass erase, and then installing Windows fresh
Going to run Hijack This soon.
