So where do I begin?

I recently reformatted my pc (info below)
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 2, 32 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 1
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 1014 Mb
Graphics Card: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family, 128 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 76285 MB, Free - 17128 MB; E: Total - 476821 MB, Free - 337098 MB;
Motherboard: Dell Inc., 0G8310
Antivirus: AntiVir Desktop, Updated: No, On-Demand Scanner: Disabled

and since doing this I cannot access any Microsoft sites, malware, spyremoval sites, I instantly thought it may be a Conficker virus...ran some tests all came back as negative.
I cannot enable auto updates, turn on my antivirus and any attempts to download scanners and even run 'Hijack this' come up with the error
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.microsoft.com.
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I can access anything else on the net, just not anything that will help me solve my problem. It's driving me nuts!

Because I can't access any of these sites I can't even send you a log. What do I do?
Unless we know another site where I could download Hijack this, without the sneaky worm finding out?

Please help!

What's the model name and model number of that Dell?

What's the 7-character service tag number on the sticker?

---------------------------------------------------------

I suggest you start over and format the hard drive and do a clean reinstall of Windows XP.

After that's done, get it up-to-date with SP3 and the post-SP3 high priority updates.

You want to get Windows XP completely up-to-date before you start loading programs and playing with that computer.
