  1. what search engine do you use and what kind of anti virus do you have?
  2. go to another pc or laptop and download malware byte. if you have no anti virus or it expired removed the expired one and use mse (microsoft it free) or avg or avast. boot into safe mode and install malware bytes. before you run malware bytes go into add/remove programs and remove the all toolbars that you dont ues. (google and ask is fine). then run malware byte full scan it should find the malware and remove it.
  3. I was going to tell you to do a search for a solution.... LOL

  4. you might want to get an malware remover like smorizio mentioned above like malwarebytes. Right now you probably have a redirect virus which will redirect you to sites.
  5. you need to reconfigure your browser to use another search engine.

    google chrome search engine
