    Format your system and start over

    OR

    Get AdAware and clean everything up.

    Sounds like some kind of spyware that keeps your startup page set to their site.

    AdAware is your friend. :)

    EDIT: DAMMIT Calesta beat me to it. :)

    don't format just yet.

    even if adaware doesn't find it- there's a good chance that it could be installed on your system.

    go through the add/remove programs list via your control panel.

    look for shit like: Gator, Bargain Buddy, or anything else that you have no idea what it is and doesn't sound important. uninstall them, reboot, and see if it still does it
