Why can't I get on the internet?

Question

I was trying to set up my personal webpage on my computer, and the internet was taking a considerably longer amount of time to get from page to page. When I put in my password to start setting up the page, the internet wouldn't even work. I got error pages, so I put in www.google.com to see if the internet was working at all. When I did so, google was up in the address bar, but the yahoo page had come up (the one where you sign in for your account, not the home page.) I then typed www.msn.com to test the internet again, and there was no yahoo this time, but a blank page with words in bold in the top left corner saying, "Do you yahoo?" The same happened for all of the pages. Even when I restart the computer, this has happened. It has been going on for several days. What is going on and how can I fix it? It is a virus? Thank you for your help.
