  1. update your anti virus and run a scan of the entire system
    as aford recommends, download malware bytes, update it, run a scan of the entire system
    empty the cookies folder, empty the temporary files folder
    click my computer, click control panel, click add remove programs, look on the list.
    is windows search on the list? delete it.

    do a system restore if possible, restore to a time before the problem started:
    click start
    click all programs
    click accessories
    click system tools
    click system restore
    check the box that says restore my computer to an earlier time, click next
    select a bold date on the calendar, a date before the problem started, click next
    follow through with the restore directions
    restart the computer after it finishes
    if the system restore does not work, select an even earlier bold date on the calendar and repeat the procedure
    try this with at least four earlier dates before giving up and trying something else

    install an all in one security solution, the type that blocks un authorized incoming connections.
