about blank

I have Windows 98. Recently whilst trying to seek the answer to a crossword clue I searhed for "British Naturalist" - result inundated with porno. I discovered that My Favourites then included "Sex only sites" and "Free porn for seven Days". Deleted these but still infected by Sypware - I think.
When I activate internet instead of geting the Tesco Home Page - my Server - I get "about blank"
I have Norton 2003 Anti Virus installed.
Please any suggestions to get back to normality ?

Many thanks to VOG & Jackcoms.
Have taken your advice. Situation improved - can now use Tesco dial-up - but PC "freezes" after using "Google" for 30 mins, or so,to search with message "error in your program"
Other programs in PC seem to be working except machine "freezes" after a time. Cannot relate it to anything. The only sure thing is that if I press Windows key + E (for Windows Explorer) PC "freezes" immediately
