New Computers Coming Pre-Infected – According to US Officials

It appears that new computer technology may be entering the US pre-infected.  A top Homeland Security official has confirmed the problem.  To read more on this check the MSNBC story.  This is one of the reasons I will clean and reload any computer I receive.  I want to know what is on it.  Too many new computers come with unwanted software, much of which have some ability to track and report use to target the advertisements you receive.  Some of these may be appealing but remember, very little is ever truly free.
