Hi -
I'm running Windows XP, Home Edition, version 2002, service pack 2. Everytime I attempt to go to google.com using IE or Firefox, I am redirected to google.ca. When I try to go to google.com/mail, I recieve an "unable to connect" messge. And, the computer is extrememly slow.

Recently I successfully removed Windows Antivirus Pro using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I hoped that this would take care of the redirect problem as well, but it did not.

Could you help me please?
