Sounds to me like your machine has been hijacked by some spam or virus software. If you have some good antivirus software you should run a scan.

Also, try manually starting Internet Explorer without any add-ons. Hold the "Windows" key down and hit "r". Then type


iexplore.exe -extoff


This will start Internet Explorer in bare bones mode.
