    If you open your browser, and there is a default home page that you did not set yourself, and it stays that way even when you change it back to what you wanted, then that is called a "Browser Hijack". It is classified as "adware".

    Run through this:

    and during the scanning steps, run this:
    http://www.soft32.com/download_19014.html

    If that doesn't solve your problem, post the Hijack This! log made in the malware checklist.
