It seems you have inadvertently picked up a 'Browser Hi-Jacker/PUP'. Kindly run this excellent 'Removal Guide' to help resolve your issues.How to remove redirect (Virus Removal Guide) .

You may find these (2) articles most informative, in regards to how this 'Nasty' arrived on your system.

I hope that this helps..

All the Best,

Re: browser redirects on start

It would help to know where the redirect is going to. Could the poster provide an obfuscated destination (formatted as in "destination [dot] com", so as to be non-clickable)?
