    Hello and welcome to TSG! :D

    Sounds like you may have been hijacked... Download Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware -- install both programs.

    Download all updates for each program before running them (for Spybot, click on "Search for Updates" then look for the button that says "Unido(Europe)" -- change it to the USA mirror site.)

    Reboot after using Adaware and Spybot.

    In AdAware, after updating it, click "Start", click on the circle (making sure it is green or has a green check in it) for "Custom Scanning Options", click on "Customize" next to it, click on the circle for "Scan Within Archives", "Scan active processes", "Scan registry", "Deep Scan Registry", "Scan my IE Favorites for banned URLs" and "Scan my Hosts file". Click "Proceed".

    Now, check/click on the circle "Activate In depth Scan" and hit "Next".

    Have the programs fix anything they find.

    Finally, download Hijack This, run it but do not fix anything yet, save it as a .txt file, copy the Hijack Log and post it back in this thread.
