BTW i ran malware bytes in quick mode it found 8 items which have been removed currently running in full scan mode. I have tried system restore but windows wouldnt let me complete the process.

OS in XP Home SP3 all up to date i think.

Try this

But if you use XP, you need to install powershell to run that fixit above. Or reinstall IE8
