you have been hijacked, download hijackthis:
install it and then post it in this next address:

Then google the problems to see if they can be safely removed. Don't delete anything you are not sure of as it will mess up your PC if you do. If you can't decide what to delete, post the problems in your next post and we'll look into it for you

Good Luck

why bother with hijackthis when any number of programs, windows defender, spybot, adaware, etc will remove the malware as well as others not seen? Any one of these will also provide future protection. All of these I mentioned are free downloads.

I agree with wanderer, but HJT will pinpoint the problem immediately, saving the excess scans. Some of the best scans are in this order:
1- Ccleaner Slim (no toolbar) will remove all junk files and also use the registry cleaner. That will speed up the scans
2- Spyware Blaster- use that to prevent malware from happening.
3- Spybot S&D- immunize and also do a complete scan
4- Malwarebytes update it and remove all it finds.

If the problem still persists you can download Avast Free and do a bootscan on reboot, moving all it finds to the chest.

If that still doesn't help, you may have to use unhackme (free for 30 days) and remove the left over problems.

All those free progs are found in the link of my signature on one page so you don't have to search for them

Good luck

EDIT: I actually run hijackthis every once in awhile on my PC's to see if anything out of the ordinary comes up. It's a QUICK check up
