    If i were you i would upgrade to Ie10 ,it is a safer browser and may help stop malware hijacking your browser.
    if you browse to the site or page that is your regular homepage and then copy the url and paste it into the internet options/general tab/homepage window

    This happens when you download an ad funded program. If you downloaded any sort of program from, for instance CNET there are options prior to the initial setup referring to installing toolbars, spam programs, etc. You probably accidentally agreed to something you didn't mean to, or you may have just visited a malicious site.

    To get rid of it do as Boohbah said. I recommend downloading an antivirus software like Avast that provides web protection.

    Or do as I do, download Google Chrome and install adblock from the Chrome store. Lifesaver.

    If you notice that you have unwanted toolbars visit your control panel, look for the name of the toolbar and simply uninstall it.

    Review Jacee’s instructions to run Adwcleaner here,
    Ignore the title of the thread,
    You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
    Manually Update them before running full scans,
    Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
    Uncheck the box to Activate the Free trial from the final install options,
    This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

    If you want to upgrade your browser try ie9 first,
