It sounds like you have acquired some 'Potentially unwanted Programs' !  Start by downloading Super AntiSpyware and Malwarebytes (Free) from BC here -

Install them, one at a time, and let them update and run. When they get to the end of their scans if they find anything, and they almost certainly will, click 'Repair' or 'Continue' and they will clean up what they find. You may be asked to re-boot, if you are, do so straight away.

 

Then go into control panel - programs and features and uninstall any browser toolbars that may be installed - Ask, Google, Bing and so on. You really don't need any of these and they just take up valuable desktop space, particularly if you are using a laptop.

 

Then make sure that your AV is up to date and set to update automatically. Finally, practice 'Safe surfing'. Just don't click on anything in sight, and if you download any software from the web - and there is a lot of good software out there - NEVER use the 'Easy' or 'Automatic' install route. ALWAYS choose the 'Custom' install. A lot of downloaded software contains additional 'passengers'. Using 'Custom' install will normally allow you to opt out of these.

 

If this doesn't solve your problems, post back.
