Sounds like

you have received some sort of malware.

What do you do to protect yourself from hackers, viruses, spyware and adware?

Try an online scan at http://housecall.trendmicro.com

Then if you do not have any anti-spyware, find (in Google), Spybot Search & Destroy, and SpywareBlaster and also from Microsoft, (www.microsoft.com), Microsoft AntiSpyware. Install them, update them and run them.

welcome to malware and all that stuff

Go to download.com and get Spybot Search and Destroy.

Then stop using Internet explorer AT ONCE. Using IE is like saying,"Hit me with every known virus and spyware know to man multiple times." Go to www.mozilla.org and get a better browser.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
