I work at a large company and keep getting told by IT that I have a virus on my computer of some sort, and it is getting into our system and disrupting other computers. They have taken my computer and ran all sorts of scans on it, and it has returned nothing. The only thing I notice is that "Just-in time debugging" keeps popping up, and when I google search something, and click on it, I am rerouted to a different random website. The antivirus/malware programs I have run are malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy. I obviously have something on my computer, but not a clue what it is. Can anyone help?

JIT debugging has nothing to do with malware.

If your searches are being redirected...that's one of the signs of malware. If you are on a corporate network...your IT person needs to take care of that.

JIT debugging is a function of certain Microsoft programs...IMO, it should never be invoked, since my understanding is that it is a debug tool designed for programmers.

Thanks Louis. I have turned my computer over to IT several times and they have found nothing. There is something hidden that is not being detected by the virus scans. Was hoping I could find someone here to help me out. McAfee, Malware Bytes, and Spybot just don't seem to cut it. The rerouting of the google searches (when I click on what the google search found) started at the same time as the JIT Debugger. Thank you!

Well...i tend to look at the big picture...that being...if your system has malware, then the network you are on at work is compromised.

That's an IT matter of the utmost concern.

Aside from malware, I can't think of any reason you would have browser redirects, but...have you tried a different browser?

I completely agree with you Louis. I have tried both Internet Explorer and Firefox, and both have the same problem.

OK, I'll move this to Am I Infected, maybe someone over there has some ideas on what approach can be taken :).
