You have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

Is it possible to update all drivers on my laptop pc

Internet Explorer has nothing to do with a driver. It's just the worst browser around but Gates was smart enough to get it packaged with every system sold. You can try getting into your Internet Options in the Control Panel and set Internet Explorer back to it's default settings under the Advanced tab.

Go download some other browsers and enhance your surfing experience.
Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "Download Mozilla Firefox" (without the quotes). Download and install it from Mozilla's site. Unlike Internet Explorer, it does not take 30 minutes to install. It will be up and running in less than 3 minutes. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome. Just put "Download Opera" in the google search and download and install it. Put "Download Google Chrome" in the google search and download and install it.They are faster and safer than Internet Explorer. Most times they work even when a virus has shut Internet Explorer down.

When i try to go to utube screen says 404 not found,

Try searching "youtube" in google and clicking on the first link that pops up. If google doesn't work, your internet connection is probably not functioning properly.

I am having the same redirect problem I have been reading about others having. I don't understand some of the tech talk. My laptop Is about useless.

You may have been reading about it, but it doesn't mean anyone else has. All the info I can get from your statement is that you keep getting redirected when you visit websites. But you haven't given any info that would help to solve this issue.

A quick search on google brought up some pages about a virus redirecting people when they try to use google in particular and sometimes other sites as well. Is this what you mean?

If it is then you'll need to either

1. Use several antivirus/antimalware software to get rid of the virus. - Saves the hassle of formating your pc, but doesn't guarantee a clean system.

There are plenty of good free programs out there, most are actually better than the expensive ones. Here's a few recommendations: Avast antivirus - the best one in my opinion, search and destroy - good antispyware, Adaware - also a good spyware program use them both

If none of the antimalware products help much then, you'll need to go to one of the forums on the list from the link below or go with option 2.

2. Format your computer and reinstall your operating system. - This can be easier if you have a virus thats really hard o get rid of. It also guarantees a clean system, at least for a while.

You'll need a setup disc for whatever OS you are using and a valid cd key(unless it's a version of Linux, as you don't need a cd key for it)

Backup any important data to dvd or flash drive first.

Put the disc in and boot from it, you may need to go into the bios and set the cd/dvd drive as the first boot device first. Then it's just a matter of following the on screen instructions and making sure you format your system drive (ie. C drive) before installing the OS.

You'll also need to learn how to surf the web properly so you don't get viruses all the time.

The link below has a list of anti malware forums, If you post your problem on one or more of those then the experts on there can help you more.

If your problem is different then post back with as much info about the problem as you can and I'll try to help.
