I don't want to scare you, but it looks like you have a type of Adware. You could easily remove the virus by having a full computer scan using Windows Defender which is already installed on your computer. Just click on the start icon and search Windows Defender.

You can also, refer to the link below for the complete removal of the Adware: http://www.precisesecurity.com/adware/remove-search-protect-by-conduit
