1- laptop or desktop?
2- Brand & Model number
3- wireless or wired connection?
Those are things you should list in order to get help. Crystal balls are extremely hard to maintain anymore.

You probably have an infection. Update your antivirus program and run. Then get Malwarebytes (free version)-> If needed, use a different computer to save the installer to a USB drive, but change the name of the installer to something that the nasty might not recognize as a threat (maybe 'myfriendhelper...') and you even should be able to change the name of the program during the install (like 'MBhelp'). After installing, run it. If you have one of those 'Name Brand' (McAfee, Norton) antivirus programs, consider getting something better (many are free including MS Essentials).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
