Hello, I currently have four computers on a home network and all have been infected. For now I want to focus on repairing the main computer.

Operating system: Windows XP
Service Pack 3
Older HP desktop

Clock has been changed to military time
Windows updates have been disabled and cannot be manually enabled
All searches on homepage (Yahoo) are redirected to other websites
Cannot put computer in safe mode to run scans-computer freezes.

I have attempted Malwarebytes, avast search, and Eset online scans with no solutions. This problem doesn't appear very harmful but it is very annoying. Please help.
