Try looking in Add/Remove programs (in the Control Panel). I had something like that called n-case, and another thing that I can't remember, but it didn't look like one of my programs, so I removed it. In my case, I had to connect to the internet to download the uninstaller for it (which is morally wrong, but hey!), and then everything worked normally (after manually setting the homepage once).

Hope that helps,
Ed
