Search opens every time I press space bar

Trying to write a comment or pm in facebook and emails is a nightmare. Every time I press the space bar the search page opens up and I have to close it to move on. I'm not very bright with computers but, I've done a clean up with CCleaner, run Malwarebytes, and even done a system restore and I can't get rid of it. Can anybody help please
