I don't know how all this happened, I wasn't doing anything special. But my windows and buttons (the start bar and stuff-->like in display properties) is set to windows classic, with no other option avaiable. and the headers on windows opened has small font and a class style. this changed automatically.
However, the main thing is that an error message keeps popping up that say:

The instruction at "0x75606eb5" referenced memory at "0x00000008". The memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program

then, whenver i click ok, the message pops back up. also, when i search something on google and click a link, the page is redirected to an ad site (the last time i got a webpage on car wheels). I think I'm infected, but I have no idea how. I tried to restart my computer, but the situation got worse. Before, the message only popped up twice or so, but after restart it would not go away. I also googled this and it seems that this infection or whatever it is gets worse on restart. therefore, i'm apprehensive to restart my computer
Please help!

Also, I uploaded a picture of how my desktop looks (with small font and classic window bars) onto imageshack (sorry, i can't figure out how to upload pictures onto this forum). heres the link:


Also, I tried system restore, but it won't work. A message pops up saying that system restore is unable to protect my computer. restart my computer and try again. but system restore still won't work
And I am running windows xp

edit: i was working on an essay on microsoft word now and another message appeared:

The instruction at "0x7c910cae" referenced memory at "0x00000000". THe memory could not be "read".
Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program

I clicked on cancel, but nothing happened.

also, I just realized that the sound isnt working either. when i try to play something in windows media player, it says theres something wrong with the sound device.
and on the internet, you know how some websites have an ad banner on the side or something. well whenever i go to one of those sites, the ad is always the same. its always an ad for men and enlargement
any help would be greatly appreciated. i really don't know what to do
