About a month ago I got a program telling me that my firewall wasnt working I thought this was kind of weird because I don't use my firewall at all. I closed out the the window and didnt think anything else of it. Then my computer started to hang up, slow down, and fan was running alot. I was using aVG but it didnt pick anything up. When I went to do a manual scan it told me that all the AVG stuff was not installed. I tried to do a system restore but then there were no restore points. So I went hunting on the internet and found out what it was and removed all the files for it that I could find. I then reinstalled AVG 9 and did a manual scan it found a couple things but deleted them. Since then AVG has not found anything else but I have been getting browser redirects to advertisement and system hang ups, also some times my audio will cut out and i cant open the audio properties.

Any help would be great thanks for the help
