From my experience this is usually due to group policy changes from adware or malware.. Do have any toolbars in any of your browsers? Internet Explorer or otherwise? Do you have programs like shopperpro or gorillaprice installed? Even without your knowledge?

 

If so you may want to hit up the Virus, Spyware, and Malware forum. Here's the guide to setting up a topic there: http://www.geekstogo...cleaning-guide/

 

Do you have any antivirus installed? Maybe try running a scan if you do and see what happens.

If you're positive it's not any kind of malware, let's try to see if the system file checker can fix it.

 

1. Go to the search bar and type "CMD" without the quotes.

2. Right click on it and select "Run as Administrator"

3. Run the command "sfc /scannow" without the quotes.

4. If SFC said it repaired files, then reboot your computer.

 

Let me know if you're still having issues and we'll go from there.

Hello,

 

I haven't heard from you in a while and your situation didn't seem like it was resolved. Do you still need help? An update is always appreciated. 

 

Thanks.  :wave:
