I recommend installing superantispyware from superantispyware.com
This will search your pc for any spyware or adware and clean it.
It will also prevent any program from changing your browser settings without your consent.

First of all don't tell me you still run Windows XP ;) ...

If you anything above(Vista, W7,..), update to IE11 via Windows Updates or
http://filehippo.com/download_internet_explorer_windows_7

In your IE go to Internet Options / Advanced -> hit the Reset

Scan your PC with: malwarebytes
https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/

Check your Control Panel / Add remove programs for unwanted software and uninstall.

In your Chrome: go to Options / Search / Manage Search Engines and remove unwanted (Google should be default)
- On start-up / Continue where you left off

Hope that helps
