For about three days my computer has been completely unable to access the windows update website, getting the error "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading." Likewise, running the windows update program results in Error Code 80072EFE.

Likewise, for three days, google results have been occasionally redirecting to seemingly random websites like marthastewart.com. Occasionally a firefox tab will open up and AVG will block it, while using firefox. Very rarely, a windows error box will come up saying "Windows Host Service has stopped working".

I've tried scanning with, so far.. AVG, Ad-aware, Spybot, and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Both in normal mode and safe mode, and they either find nothing, or the things they find apparently aren't what I have.

Running Windows Vista SP2. 32-bit.

EDIT: One of the popups is "google.com/webhp", and it's occured twice lately.
