I have no idea what is wrong, and I feel very stupid about now.

First off I have a Toshiba Satellite with a Celeron R CPU, Windows XP 2002, SP2
I use Firefox 99% of the time. Google Chrome very little.

Here is what is happening:
In Firefox, my homepage which is the Firefox Google search, does not open. Instead, I get a re-direction to a site and a certificate verification for this site: www.kitchensinks.nOt which I do not accept.
All that shows up on the homepage is a O (could be an 0 or zero) in the upper left hand corner of the screen.
When I try to open G-Mail the same thing happens. It also does this if I try to use the Google Search from the drop-down menu.
This is also happening in Google Chrome, when I try to use Google search or try to access G Mail.

I have run AVG - No infections.
I ran Advanced Windows Care and CCleaner.

After I did this, and got back online (I have dial-up) the Firefox browser opened with the correct home page. However, when I tried to access G-mail, it started all over again.

Edit to add: I was reading the Security Help at the top of the Page. I tried to go to virusscan.jotti.dhs.org, and the page opened with a O or zero. Arrrgh!

I know very little about computers, and I am lost in XP. I do not have adaware installed because I don't know how to use the new edition.

So, what do I do? I appreciate any help you can give me. TIA.
