try installing this program and running it. www.malwarebytes.org This will probably clean it.

fordraiders--For the future you should install an antivirus program, keep its reference definitions up to date and scan with it at least once a week.  That should help you avoid infection.
Two excellent free ones
Avira and Avast

I would also suspect spyware/malware, but if murgroup's suggestion doesn't work out...

Check your registry under
HKLM/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion/explorer/browserhelperobjects

I delete everything listed there.  some are valid (like acrobat reader) but will reapply themselves if necessary.

Assuming you've tried cleaning out temp files, but if not, the below commands will delete temp files, cookies, IE passwords, etc... (I don't really think temp files are your issue)

del "%userprofile%\local settings\temp\*.*" /q /s
del "%userprofile%\local settings\temporary internet files\*.*" /q /s
del "%systemroot%\temp\*.*" /q /s
