Is Coin Generation a Virus, or safe?

I was so foolish to download Coin Generation right away without checking its status and user’s feedback first. The thing started when I’ve got a link from Facebook about this program. When I visited their website on coingeneration.org, I was amazed of the opportunity written on the home page.

“Earn Money Using Your PC!
After signing up, you install a program that runs in the background of your computer. You earn $1/day per thread and have the option of buying more threads or referring people to increase income. This is literally the easiest money you will ever make. Daily Payouts!”

I downloaded the program and it instantly made awful changes on the computer. This gives me the impression that the file downloaded from coingeneration.org has a virus. It causes my screen to go blank as if the system is in ‘sleep’ mode. When I press power button to awake it, Windows is showing a fatal error then it can start working again. I brought it to the store where I bought the computer and the technician set it to factory settings. When I got home, everything is working fine. However, when I begin to install additional program, the computer freezes and screen goes blank again.

The fatal error still persists. Is it really Coin Generation that causes this abnormalities, or is it a safe program to use?

    Coin Generation or Digital Coin is not a virus. It is some form of online currency that you can use literally. However, some hackers or cyber criminals are using various methods to generate more coins with the use of risky tactics. Some attackers are even employing Trojans to use victim’s PC in order to produce more coins. With that method, Coin Generation is now being generally dubbed as harmful or malicious.
