Hello. I have a very basic knowledge of computers, so keep that in mind when directing me with what to do. :)
My computer is running on Microsoft Windows XP. I use Firefox as my browser and when I do a search in google or yahoo, I am redirected to a bunch of different sites that are not listed in the search. Also, everytime I open the browser, a pop up and new tab comes up that says I won a Walmart Gift Card (with the site address of http://holidaycontest.s3.amazonaws.com). My computer is running extremely slow...to the point that I have to wait about 5 minutes to open a folder on my desktop. Lastly, when I log onto the computer a Run dll error pops up with the dll being ntofpx.dll.
I have run Antivirus software, Malware, Spyware, defragmenter, registry cleaner.
Thank you.

Forgot to mention that this all started when we got hit with the Microsoft Security Essentials virus, and hotfix was attacking our system. I believe it has been removed, but that was what started everything.
