I was trying to get a video from my camcorder to my computer so I installed the program on the disc that came with the camcorder. The disc supposedly installs "VideoCam Suite 1.0". So I install it and it asks me restart my computer. So I restart it. I notice my computer takes an exceptionally long time to load up windows, and then my account (all the icons and the start bar take a couple minutes to appear which has never happened before). And once it does load, all the display settings are set to "windows classic" and the internet no longer works.
I tried troubleshooting for the internet but it seems like the help program has been disabled (it tells me to start the "help and settings" program but I have no idea where to find that). My ethernet cable is still attached to my computer so it should work. Under network connections, it shows none. So I installed the videocam suite but all the problems are still there, the slowness, the weird display settings and the internet not working.
A couple weeks ago I had a virus on my computer so I looked up how to get rid of it and I thought I had gotten all of it. The only thing that was kind of weird was when I googled something and clicked on a result, it often redirected me to some random page. I was thinking that maybe part of the virus is still around and somehow the installing the program made it worse.
