You likely have a Smitfraud malware. Use the Smitfraudfix tool in the link below.
Run "option #1" and if it finds anything remove it by running "option #2".

Follow up with the two programs in links below that will remove the malware that accompanies the Smitfraud malware.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
