Hi my computer is a windows xp. i recently got it from my cousin's girlfriend since she hasnt been using it for 2 years. i cant get information if there was a virus or not before because a lot of people have used it. I cant go on google. It wont let me. the end of the post in bold is what it says when i try to with mozilla firefox. also it lets me access yahoo but when i try to search on yahoo, then it says the same thing. but atleast with yahoo it lets me go to the website, with google, msn, and bing it wont let me even go on the website. Also ask.com works for going on the website and searching as well. When i looked it up online people said it was a malware so i am worried that i have a virus of some sort. WHen i use internet explorer it says that the "page cannot be displayed" as if the internet doesnt work. then it redirects me to the avg search engine site. when i got the computer i noticed in the bookmarks, there was a link to "Remove go google virus", whatever that is. Maybe the go google virus is still on here? Any input would be appreciated.

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at google.com.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
