Hi. I have a few month old Lenovo laptop with XP. Recently I'm noticing that when I do a Google search from Firefox, IE, or Chrome, I'm being redirected to weird sites. I thought I had clicked on an ad by mistake but soon realized that my laptop is likely infected. I'm not good with computers - am not sure what my computer is infected with...is there a way to check? I've ran Ad-Aware and SuperAnti-spyware and cleaned the infections they found, but the redirecting persists. Sometimes a new tab will open when I'm clicking on a link from a website. I installed McAfee but it's not installing correctly. I don't know what else to do...I'm scared to use my laptop...is it possible that hackers are recording everything I'm typing? Can they get my account information? Can my laptop be completely cleaned?

I don't think my laptop came with a CD to reinstall XP...please help!
