    I've pasted SysInfo below.
    Whenever I enter a search on google.com, new malware search results show up.
    Sometimes clicking on a link I want to get to opens up a new browser tab that I didn't ask for. Sometimes this happens even when clicking on any random space on the page, not even on a link.
    The other day I opened Youtube and there were all these new Youtube videos showing up on my home page in another language that I had no interest in.
    Someone else uses this computer once in a while and I think they may not be aware of what links and downloads to avoid.
    I'm usually using Google Chrome.
    Anyway, please help! This has been going on for a while but it's really interfering work now.

    In addition - sometimes when I open a new tab, even before google.com can open, some other search engine starts up.
