    I've recently reinstalled windows xp on this machine and its started acting weird again.
    Searchs on google would go to http://go.google..... and then go to ad sites instead of the intended sites.
    I can no longer access the windows update site as it says in the Windows Security Centre that windows update is turned off on my machine. I've gone to try and turn it on and it comes up with a message saying "We're sorry. The security centre could not update your Automatic Update settings...."
    I've gone to the Automatic Updates tab in My Computer and it is showing Windows Update is turned on.
    I've looked in services.msc and Automatic Updates was disabled, I tried starting that and it comes up with an error message.
    Tried going to some websites with malware removal and the browser keeps saying connection timed out.
