Sounds like something is hijacking your homepage.
Possibly a piece of Spyware.

Firstly, open Internet Explorer and click tools and then click internet options.
(Another way is to double click My computer > control Panel > Internet Options)

In the window which has opened what is the address of your homepage?
Does it say somethin like
or does it say something with
If it says something with then change it to and see if this helps.

If it doesn't the cut and paste the following line into your browsers address page

This will download LavaSoft Adware. Run the program and it will remove any spyware on your PC.

Try clearing out your Temporary internet files and your cookie, also in Internet Options, just in case something is lurking in there.
