Sounds like you have picked up some malware. Run full scans with your anti-virus program. Also download and run a full scan with Malware Bytes Anti Malware Free.

If that doesn't help then I'd recommend registering at one of the good malware removal sites. They are free.

Here are a few I'm aware of:
Virus, Spyware & Malware Removal - What the Tech
Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal - Geeks to Go Forums
Spyware, Adware, Viruses and Malware Removal - Techie7 Forums
Malware Removal - Safer-Networking Forums
