  1. You've apparently installed a bunch of stuff that included their own search bars and toolbars.

    Start with Malwarebytes.org

    Best way to prevent that? Pay attention to the default settings on application installations. Many of them do this.

    Formatted and reinstalled Windows, and the problem still exists?
    Ok...gotta ask. From where did you get the Windows install disk?
