    One Word: Spyware..

    Get Spybot S&D from http://download.com/

    (and do get Spywareblaster and Immunize your Browsers)

    True! Its a spyware/adware/malware! Get Spybot Search & Destroy and stop using internet explorer. There are many better options out there ;)

    @Nashedi, Your IE browser has been hijacked by a Spyware/Adware/malware.
    Don't use IE browser since it uses IE to connect to the Net!! Better use FireFox or
    Opera for browsing. Also install ZoneAlarm firewall. Block any suspicious software
    from connecting to the Net. Also install a anti-spyware software like SpyBot, Spy Sweeper,
    get the latest updates from the Net & do a full System scan.

    this same thing happend to me also one time
    for this
    go to ur control panel & in add remove programme find out their must be some new software installed, (may me its name is search bar, safe search or something like that)remove that
    & after that search ur OS drive (normally C:\) for that named files (which was the name of that programme you removed)
    & delete all the files & folder with that name
    also search in registry
    After this just do a virus scan
