You have a WEB page hijacker running. Although there are many programs that might fix this, I suggest going to http://adwareaway.com and download their program. It removes hijackers, adware, spyware etc. It is very effective.

HiJack This is the common tool for your problem.

In addition to Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy, you might look at these:

Remember to disable System Restore before running the spyware apps, then re-enable it after a reboot.
