I had a similar problem with my XP computer.
It has been so long ago I forget what I did to fix it.
I would start to use FireFox though I am not a fan of FF4 and an sticking to FF3.6 until the add ons for FF4 all
The last think I would do is install Chrome if you have a Google issue!
Find Advanced System Care the free version and install it and run it.
I also use Glary Utilities to see what it does.
(UPDATE) I went to run CCleaner and there was a update available.
I downloaded the update and it also installed Google Chrome and the Google tool bar on my computer and made Chrome my default browser!!
I have Win& on my netbook and I despise it so I am sticking with XP SP3 until smoke starts coming from the hard drive.
I don't play games and it is more than sufficient.
