A Google search says you're probably infected with some kind of Malware , try running a scan

It could have come bundled with something you downloaded. Run system restore back to a date before it happened. Also run MSCONFIG and see if anything suspicious is checked on startup. That is of course a scan does not fix things as previously mentioned.

The other replies are good advice. Something I've had success with before is ADWCleaner. Download it from this link and run it. It's free.
