You probably have some type of add-on such as a tool bar that was installed, or another type.

I believe Browser Helper Objects (BHO) can sometimes be involved. I would search my registry for the name ezanel and also try using Hijack This to see if it points any BHO or other dangerous software.

Edit: I suppose I should add, I have not used Hijack This in a while and it seems to be open source now. Make sure it is useable on Windows 8.
