There is a good chance your computer is infected with spyware. Spyware finds its way onto unsuspecting computers through various hidden methods. Once infected, your PC can get bogged down by hidden processes, unwanted pop ups, web browser hijackers and many other symptoms, and your personal information can be exposed.
