It sounds like you have some form of a hijacker virus. You probably won't be able to do this from the infected computer but, if you have a spare - or a buddy who do it for you, go to Malwarebytes.org and download a copy of their Malwarebytes anti-malware program and try to install it using a flash drive.

If at all possible, physically disconnect your computer cable from your internet source (Cable, DSL, Dial-up, etc.) then try to boot into "Safe Mode" and install the Malwarebytes program while in safe mode. You can also run the program in while in safe mode.

Once the anti-malware program is installed and running, just follow the on screen instructions. This is a very user friendly, as well as a very effective cleaning program.
