Hi wankhede,

Your computer may have spyware/adware/malware.  This infection software is often not picked up by anti-virus software and needs specific cleaning software.  The software I recommend is downloaded from www.safer-networking.org and is called Spybot S&D.   You will need to download, install, search for updates and then scan your computer for the little software nasties.  Once you have done so, reboot your computer and see if the problems are gone.  If not download a program called Hijack This from www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html this prgram produces a log file.  Post the log file here and someone will be able to tell you what to do.

Cheers,
IceRaven

Hi wankhede,

What you're seeing is very likely caused by Ad-ware.
There are several tools to get rid of it, as you can see here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Browser_Issues/Q_20945897.html

Personally in this case I suggest you to use both Ad-Aware and Spybot.
If you have problems afterwards, use hijackthis and post the logfile here.

Greetings,
