Hi there; welcome to DaniWeb. :)

Please give us some background info concerning the problem (when it started happening, if you made any changes to your system at or around the time problem first occured, what version of Windows you're using, etc.) and also give us as much detail as possible about your network/Internet setup

Once we have more specific details to work with, I'm sure we can definitely help you out.

It sounds as if you've gotten some type of virus, so I've moved your thread to the appropriate forum (for the time being anyway).

Get HijackThis from here:
http://www.malwareremoval.com/downloads.html (look for the link to the selfextracting version in line #2)

Close all browser windows, 'Scan and Save Log' with hijackthis, copy and paste the log here.

As for an alternative browser, it is highly recommended you do so, and most of the more popular ones are similar enough to IE that you shouldn't have too much trouble getting used to them. You can search around here at DaniWeb for opinions and recommendations to help you decide for yourself, but Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/) seems to be the most popular choice.
