When I went to google.com all I get is "Address not Valid" on IE and I know I typed the address correctly. Then when I try firefox I get "The connection has timed out". Does anyone know why this keeps happening? x.x; I also tried Yahoo's search engine and the same thing happens. Same for Bing too.

Check for malicious proxy servers.

*In IE: Tools Menu -> Internet Options -> Connections Tab ->Lan Settings > uncheck "use a proxy server" and "Bypass proxy server for local addresses" or reconfigure the Proxy server again in case you have set it previously.

In Firefox in Tools Menu -> Options... -> Advanced Tab -> Network Tab -> "Settings" under Connection and uncheck the proxyserver, set it to No Proxy.
