I just started a new job and they gave me this computer. Its acting like it is infected though. For instance if I google something, the first 7 or 8 choices will be from www.findstuff.com. And then when I click on a link the address will pop up with " www.romeomeetsjuliet.com " comes up and then I get redirected to the link I was looking for, or it will say "cannot connect to the internet". Also there are alot of tracking cookies and trojan stuff in the AVG virus vault. And my computer is so slow. I hope this is enough information for you. Let me know if I can be more assistance.

Thank you.
Kenny

I strongly suggest that you do not jeopardize your new job by attempting to fix it yourself
That is the company and it's IT department responsibilty
