I haven't any idea what the messages mean, but perhaps someone else knows.

If I had this, I would first in CCleaner on the start-up section, to see if there is anything there to be suspicious about!.

I think you have a Browser Hijacker. When did this start? Go to Control panel, Uninstall programs and there will be 2 or 3 things installed the date this started - uninstall them all.

still in uninstall programs, tick the box to "Show updates" look for Internet Explorer. Uninstall. This will roll back to the previous version and remove the nasties.

Reboot and run Malwarebytes and a virus scan.
