I would recommend a couple of things to check.

First, make sure your anti-virus program is updated and run a full scan of your system.

Second, I would install Malwarebytes (get it from, update it, and run a full scan as well. Delete everything it finds.

After doing these things, if you still have issues, come back for more help.
