First... With the warning that a reset will delete autocomplete data, such
as passwords and you will have to reinstall or re-enable browser add-ons,
work through this article:
936213- How to optimize or reset Internet Explorer 7:
If the previous procedures didn't resolve the issue, you may have at least
one malicious program (malware) installed and running.
1. Scan with Windows Defender.
2. Run the Malicious Software Removal Tool.
This is not a wide-spectrum tool, but is worth running.
3. Run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
4. If there is *any* reason to suspect that these tools didn't remove all
malware, visit one of these sites, register and follow the protocol.
