My other computer is no longer acknowledging any keyboards for some reason so I switched to my Gateway from 2002. It was barely used and didn't have spyware protection or anything like that. My browser was out of date so I downloaded firefox and immediately began being redirected to google or a error 400 screen. the only way i could access any other page was to go to run>cmd>ipconfig/release>ipconfig/renew every single time I needed to click a link or be redirected. I switched to the Internet explorer browser and can now use the internet but with an outdated browser. i downloaded malware bytes anti-malware and it didn't find anything. neither did hitman pro 3.5 or hijack this. i went to C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and there's just one address; 127.0.0.1 localhost. i don't know what else to do and was hoping someone can help me. I'd really appreciate it. I have Windows XP Home Edition version 2002 service pack 2, if that helps.
