Hello,

Possibly your system is infected with some adware. Try a full scan with either Spybot S&D, AdAware, or MS Antispyware. Also remember to update the definitions first.

I had this problem on my company's network. Turns out my home page of choice was being hijacked and replaced by their intranet home page. I was able to fix this with MS anti-spyware.

Or if u dont mind blowing up the registry, search for folders caleed RunOnce and remove reg keys that lead to weird programs that u dont know about. eg: szchost.exe ...... nice name to trick people who know that svchost.exe is a system file......

There are about 3 - 4 RunOnce folders.... check them all for unknown programs. Also u will see other folders starting with Run, or only Run.... they too contain loads of crap ......

You could also have a virus called Reg / Seeker ..... it changes hompage evrytime u boot.

Or in a simple way...... Get System Mechanic from Iolo.com

It rocks. I LOVE IT.
