Make sure that you don't have a blank proxy set. In other words, make sure there is no check mark on "use proxy"

You are, if you are a home user - good isn't it LOL?

First step would be to Reset IE.
Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced > hit Reset button.

You will lose IE customizations but add-ons will come rolling back with time.

If the above doesn't work uninstall Chrome. If this works it will probably stay working when you install Chrome again.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I think your infected. You should start scanning your computer for viruses.

Yes a virus is always possible (see #4).

I would also run MalwareBytes freebie on it as this often finds and fixes what AV's miss. Download, update and install it from here:

I fit finds anything of consequence you might need further assistance but MWB is good.
