It sounds like spyware, Download spybot s&d, that should solve your problem

I had this exact same problem with my homepage. I installed SP2 and it has fixed everything. Still pop up and spyware free for about 4 months or so.

I had the same thing happen to me all the time. Sometimes adaware and spybot will pick it up sometimes they wont. What you have is a "Browser Hijacker" you need to get a remover look on majorgeeks.com or downloads.com they should have a free one it does all the work for you.
