    Only you can answer that because it sounds this is something that frequently happens as a result of some user action, unintentional, unbeknownst or deliberate.

    Have you installed/updated any programs recently ?

    Did you have to close any popups on web sites you visited ?

    In some web browsers you can't delete search engine choices, only change the default option

    Check any browser extensions/addons

    Run Malwarebytes (freeware version)

    EDIT : "goggle"? .. I assume this means you're using Google Chrome web browser ? Uninstall> re-install (don't forget to save your favourites first).
