Hello, I originally used Google Chrome as my internet browser, but for some strange reason, it resulted in a DNS error, which caused me to be unable to access anything Google related with Google Chrome. I've already looked and searched for a solution, but I am unable to find one.
So I switched over to Firefox. However, when I use Google Searches on Firefox, the searches redirect me to random Ad sites.
I used to use Avira for my anti-virus, but I've recently switched to Microsoft Internet Security Essentials. Also, during that same day, I downloaded Avast and performed a scan with that, and it found that one of my system files was infected with a rookit. I've heard that removing such a file can cause a computer to not be able to boot up so I decided to leave that alone for a while. Then I performed scans with Microsoft Internet Security Essentails, Superanti-Spyware, and Malwarebytes, and they all resulted in nothing.
I am on a Dell Inspiron 1525 and I have Windows Vista Ultimate. And it is a 32-bit operating system.
Would you guys be able to help me with my problems?
