is linking to a page other than the page which you set as your home page, then the chances are that you are a victim of browser hijack. Get a copy of Spybot S&D click here and Ad-aware click here these will ensure that any spyware on your machine is eliminated.

Make sure Ad-aware is fully updated.

Restart Windows in Safe Mode - keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen loads then select Safe Mode from the menu that should appear. Then run Ad-aware again.
