You're infected. As has been suggested, run malwarebytes, preferably in safe mode. Also run ccleaner and adwcleaner. The former can be found on
filehippo.com, and the latter can be found at bleepingcomputer.com.
Now you will need to go remove any add-ons and extensions from firefox, you didn't put there. Note there are some that must be there. Usually, the
ones you want to remove, stick out like a sore thumb. Afterward, run Microsoft fixit...
BTW. You'll want to disable your anti-virus while you're doing all of this. It will only interfere with the cleaning process.
Lastly, consider combing through your installed programs for obvious junkware. Dealkeeper, regclean pro, optimizer, etc. A good uninstaller, such as
Revo or Geek uninstaller, will clean up leftovers too.
