sounds like malware or a virus

by PurpleSkys In reply to Browser Problem

are you running an anti virus and/or anti malware programs>? If not, you could start Ccleaner to clear your cookies, temp files, etc http://www.piriform.com/CCLEANER and then follow up with an a/v like Avast free http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download or AVG free http://free.avg.com/ca-en/homepage . For malware, try malwarebytes free http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button . good luck :)
