IE10 opening weird websites by itself. Virus?

My work-laptop is opening weird websites like this http://aulxfelmzqdccu/ by itself.
These adresses are different after every restart. Im not a admin user so i cant install any software against viruses the only software that it has is Trend Micro Office scan and Windows Defender.
Windows Defender dosent find anything.
What Could I DO whitout admin rights or do i have to call help.

Notice: it dosent open a new tab or a window when already in IE.

Any help is appreciated.
Il try to reply to every question.

    Sadly i cant run SuperantiSpyware and malwarebytes but in could run hijackthis without admin rights.
  4. there doesn't look like anything amazingly bad... there is one solid yellow flag "browserchoice.exe", however thats likely legit, not enough info... there is a weak yellow flag in "winvnc.exe", however that looks like its probably legit.
  5. run hjt and delete the following.

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar,LinksFolderName =

    O2 - BHO: Groove GFS Browser Helper - {72853161-30C5-4D22-B7F9-0BBC1D38A37E} - C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~2\Office14\GROOVEEX.DLL

    O2 - BHO: URLRedirectionBHO - {B4F3A835-0E21-4959-BA22-42B3008E02FF} - C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~2\Office14\URLREDIR.DLL

    before we go further than this i have to ask if you go to any estonian websites? in your trusted zone and esc trusted zone you have a mittfull.if you dont know what they are i think we may have found our problem.post back and advise. Al.
