Internet Redirect Problem

Hewlett-packard / Pavilion zv6000

Specs: Windows XP
I have WinXP and Firefox - today I accidentally clicked on a file I didn't mean to open, attached to a friend's email (when it opened, it said it was a video - yes, incorrect youtube spelling, so I knew immediately it was suspect). Anyway, since then, anytime I click on a site link when I do a Google search for anything, I get redirected to random shopping pages full of links. If I know the site address, I can get straight to it. Also, while surfing, after a period of time, a window will pop up saying it's "jumping" - but I can just shut it down and continue on. Earlier today, it kept taking me to My Computer - Windows - Internet Explorer. I completely removed Internet Explorer after that (never use it anyway as far as I know), but it still happens. Any clues? Thanks.
