Windows XP service pack 2. Computers homepage is set to www.google.com and when I do a search in the google search bar it brings up a list of found results just fine, but when I click on one of the result links about 9 times out of 10 it will try to go to some other website (blocked by noscript when using firefox). The 1 time out of 10 that I am allowed to actually get to the actual site I clicked on, quite often the page only loads about halfway before timing out. Also, online games time out when attempts are made to log on to them.

Please let me know what to do, and thanks in advance for your time! =)

(edit: some spelling mistakes.)
