This is a problem I believe everyone has faced at some point.
It's a form of Malware on your PC. If you have any Anti-Virus/Malware software I'd suggest doing a full scan.
If you don't have any Anti Malware software on your PC, I'd suggest one of these.

http://www.malwarebytes.org/
Although that doesn't give you live protection, only a scan.

http://www.comodo.com/home/internet...
I'd recommend Comodo for all your security, It's free and does a good job.

If you have any problems with anything, use another machine to google "search engine redirect malware" or something similar.
There are thousands of pages and solutions.

Comodo is OLD hat and the virus protection is weak. I would suggest Avast Free....the best free one available:

http://www.avast.com/pr-new-avast-f...

The way to fix your problems is to run these 3 free tools in the EXACT order:
1- rkill.exe stops the process
http://www.technibble.com/rkill-rep...
2- TDSS killer removes any unwanted rootkit if found

3- Malwarebytes....run a full scan and DON'T reboot untill the scan and removal are done.
