Browsers acting strange

I am having a very strange problem. Multiple browsers are having the same problem. IE8 and Firefox From time to time I click on a link and the browsers redirects to my home page. I have had Microsoft security essentials running on this machine for some time and it has not found anything. I ran Malwarebytes and again found nothing of note. I also ran CCleaner and the problem abated for a couple of days but has again resurfaced. Any suggestions for a next step?

Hi Docpel, use Revo uninstaller portable to remove FF then reset IE8
