I don't think this sounds like a virus. Try running Ccleaner in its Default mode. If you don't already have CC just Google for the download.

Go to all programs and right click on Internet Explorer. properties.And across from run make sure Normal Window shows on the dropdown bar. Looks like it is set to Minimised at the moment.

OK - lets look at the virus route then - have you run any anti-virus checks?

And what about anti-malware, like Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware?

If still the same after running those, then it looks like a full OS re-install - assuming you have your original OS software.
