It looks like you may be infected with spyware. Have you run an anti spyware program?

What security programs are you using? Some of them (like SpywareGuard, Spybot, SAS) have features to protect your home page and will notify you of any event attempt to change the browser home page. They make no judgment on whether the change is good or bad but leaves the decision up to you to allow or deny it. This would occur even if you were the one who deliberately changed your home page.
