This is a browser hijacker.
Don't go to any sites giving removal instructions. Malwarebytes prevented me from going to one because it hosts malware. The other "snake oil" sites want you to download unknown programs, which would probably add to your troubles.

I suggest you post in the malware part of the forum

and tell them you have the browser hijacker qip.ru
