Okay Im using firefox. I try set ebay or any other page for that matter as my homepage, but when I restart my computer and open up firefox it goes back to a load of nonsense eg adjfajdfkjdaslfjdasfjsd;a or whatever.

is there anyway i can stop this happening?

Are you setting your homepage by using Tools, Options, General and clicking use current page, i.e. the page which is open at the time. If you are doing that the I have no idea apart from uninstalling and doing a re-install

can you change the homepage with no problem?

Are you running anti-virus and spyware software?

Have you tried re-installing Firefox?

Also (if you answer no to forum editor's 2nd question) try running spyware removing software. It could be a hyjack.

I use these, they are free and very good.
1...Spybot Search&Destroy
2...CWShredder
3...LavaSoft ARIES rootkit remover + Ad-aware

Hope this helps ;)
