You (probably) have a browser hijacker:

I've met this critter before, it's usually installed when you try to view dodgy video streams ;)

There are probably other things that install it though :P

All I use is 'Microsoft Security Essentials' because I have tried just about everything going and they all clog up your system eventually...

...Norton is the biggest culprit and I wouldn't let it anywhere near any of my kit! I used Zonealarm successfully for years, until that too bloated and got uninstalled.

A computer geek collegue of mine recommended MSE and I haven't looked back since; it's also FREE to download! 8)

I personally use Avast (free version) for antivirus and on the extremely rare occasion something gets past I use Spybot Search and Destroy to eradicate it.

Never had any issues (I don't use the resident portions of spybot as it's a really bad idea to have more than one anti-malware program running at once).

I'd also add that Norton is (at least the versions I've used which included Symantec corporate edition) a pile of memory-leak inducing poo!

Another vote for Avast, but you may want to consider downloading the portable version of ClamWin (link) and letting that run over the system too.
I always keep it (among with a selection of other portable apps and tools) on a USB stick on my keyring. You never know when it comes in handy.
