    Download avast (first uninstall your old antivirus). Open the interface, go to "Scan Computer", blick the Boot Time Scan sub-tab. Change the Heuristics Sensitivity to high, slick settings and select "My Computer". Click OK, then "Schedule Now".

    Run that.

    Next, when it is done, open internet explorer. Open Internet Options. Go to Connections, Click "Lan Settings". Un-check "Use a proxy server for your lan..." if it is checked. Okay, Okay, Okay out of the window, close IE. Open firefox if you have it, go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced -> Network. Click "Settings" under the Connection heading, and select "No Proxy". Ok out of all of that too and, at the very least, your search troubles will be gone. Repeat the steps for any other browsers you use.

    It's adware, malwarebytes should be able to pick it up.
