I think you may have a case of adware, I suggest using spybot s&d, its a good free program. May I ask what you have tried? I am referring to the part where you said "i have tried many things".
Also what antivirus are you using?

what browser are you currently using? try internet explorer or chrome and see if you are still getting the problem with surveys before getting on youtube etc. if you aren't getting the problems uninstall the browser that had the problems and reinstall the latest version from their site.

Have you checked your "hosts" file?
Your "hosts" file may have been edited by something.

It doesn't have an extension, but you can open "hosts" with "Notepad".
Normally it will be empty apart from comments (unless you've added something).

I think Spybot adds entries to it (site blocking).
Default hosts file
dont know where to put it so ima put it here... computer is messing up-hosts.png
The lines with # are comments.
The additional entries should all show: Some Internet Site
If you are using IPv6 (you probably aren't) it will show:
::1 Some Internet Site
I've attached a default "hosts" file here:

Just extract the file (from the zip file) to your Desktop and then copy it to the location mentioned at the top of the post.

The firewall message seems to suggest that something (e.g. Worm or other malware) on your PC is trying to access the net.
