    If you're not visiting that site, you're infected with something that's making you visit it. I suggest you do a full scan with MalwareBytes.

    malwarebytes found nothing and the rest of my system was clean, so ran hijackthis and it found this:

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file://C:\WINDOWS\system32\sb.htm

    so i deleted it.not sure if this is it though.

    You could always try SuperAntiSpyware also.
