Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

Question owner

Here is what I did, downloaded Firefox 8 and upgraded (I'm certain I was already running version 8), didn't help. Ran my malware software and it didn't find anything. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it. I must not of gotten a clean uninstall, when I checked all of my bookmarks were still there from my previous use. Still can't get to google. every time I try I get the message 404 not found.
