    You have what is called a "redirector" on your computer that hijacks your links in your browsers and forces you to go to their websites.

    Run avast at boot up and clean out your system. Then run spybot to catch anything else that still may be lurking around. Then run avast full scan to do a final check on your system. other anti-virus programs like avast are out there for you to download too if you perfer another brand.

    This should solve the problem.
