    I would suggest getting on a different computer, download a program called hijackthis as well as malwarebyte anti-malware and run both of those on your system to see what it comes up with. You should be able to copy them to a USB drive and then move them to your system to run. Let us know the results.

    Glad to hear that Hiroshi, I suspect that you were hit by a malware program.
