Changing without any input from me, i may be sitting reading and suddenly it clicks on to msn or something similar, i have run spy sweeper and ADaware but they havnt found any thing, also i have mcafee firewall which keeps alerting me every time i open O.E. even though each time i tick the DO NOT ASK ME AGAIN box, could these two be related? any suggestions please

Try running Ad-aware again and run both a Smart System Scan and a scan of the whole drive and remove everything it finds. Is your homepage changing or not ? I assume your using Internet Explorer. IE tends to have lots of security holes and I would recommend trying another browser. If you want to try another one then look at the recommendations by click here

CWS - two more options; also ensure that they are up to date.

Get mozilla Firefox - beats IE any day in my opinion.
