Sounds like you have adware/spyware in there somewhere.

Download cwshredder from here

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip

Close all browser windows (including minimized windows)
Run cwshredder

When it is finished Reboot your computer.

Download Adaware from here

Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

Make sure you select "Check for updates now" and get the latest reference files.

Run Adaware and hit the Scan now button, make sure Activate indepth scan is selected and then
hit next. After the scan has completed delete everything it finds.

Restart your computer.

Then Download Spybot search & destroy from here. Read the instructions while you're there.

http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/index1.html

Install the program (Close all browser windows) and run it.

Before scanning press "Online" and "Search for Updates"

Put a check mark at and install all updates.

Click "Check for Problems" and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds in red.

Restart your computer.

Download "Hijack this" from here

Once you have unzipped it and have it running, Hit the scan button, when the scan is finished the button will change to a save log button, click it and then a notepad window will open, you need to copy and paste all of the log contents in here and someone will look at it for you.

Look in the Registry...
Run REGEDIT and go to...
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel

Check the right hand pane for a dword value GeneralTab
and if it is present set it to 0

Then go to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel

And do the same there.
