Search window opens when not doing a search

That is a sure sign of an infection.
First of all perform all the Windows updates.
Second, run your AV program, an antispyware, and hijacker programs.

Its going to be lenghty and tedious job, but necessary if you want to keep your information.

Another solution could be make a backup of all your data, and format and reinstall your OS.

When i open IE 8 a message comes up that says "A program on my computer has corrupted my default search provider for IE" I can close the message and then another box opens to set my default search...

Set the default search provider to Google when you see the message. I then suggest you update all security programs and then run all your security scans in Safe Mode. You are more than likely infected with something.
