    What did you install on your PC? That is probably your culprit.

    OpenDNS is a service not an application. You do not install it and it can't take over your browser.

    I'd suggest running scanning your computer with malwarebytes http://malwarebytes.org/

    If you want 3rd party articles about what OpenDNS is, read here:

    @jozacro
    You are rather an ignorant. I have given a link above to clear instructions on how to take away OpenDNS from your configuration. So just do that! And I want to second sonicfleck, OpenDNS cannot be installed, just configured in the TCP/IP settings of your computer or your router.

    To see if you are using OpenDNS at all, visit http://welcome.opendns.com/
    If you are not using OpenDNS, e.g. get the Oops page, then there is nothing to do regarding OpenDNS.

    "I installled something on my PC".
    Pretty stupid. Uninstall it, if you don't know what it is good for.
    Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Software
    But be ensured, this is nothing to do with OpenDNS.

    "...when I mistype..."
    And yes, agreed, you often seem to have troubles with spelling. Try to improve this.
