You've got malware! Assuming that you're using a Windows PC (rather than something like an iPad or an Android device) run Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware if you've already got it on your machine. Otherwise use AdwCleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

thank you , done it.
Thanks Buenchico, I had a very similar problem to follyfancier - after reading your reply to them, I installed AwdCleaner and it did the trick.

I have been away for a week and not used the computer until today , just did another search on google now and it is doing the same again although I did what you said with the adw cleaner
Run AdwCleaner again and reset your browser to its default settings. (If you need instructions, tell us which browse you're using).
