How do I get my homepage back?

Question

I started having this problem when i accidentally went into a porn website. When i open my internet browser , my homepage would be changed everytime (normally porn sites). How do i change this? I tried going into properties and change the website to my usual home page but its still the same.The address when i open my browser is

mk:@MSITStore:C:\WINDOWS\start.chm::/start.html#259aa83c-34f8-4fdf-acf5-18d1f96cc8f3

Another problem i have is i cannot go to a website by typing in the address bar. Whenever i type , (For Example) www.computerproblems.com , i will always experience this (For Example) http://www.nkvd.us/www.computerproblems.com

So how can i solve this problems i hope that you can help me.Thank you.

Unfortunately this is becoming more and more common Here's what I did to fix mine at home with a similar issue:

Download and install ad-aware from Lavasoft Run it The first thing it

asks is to update the configuration file, allow it to do this, and then run

the ad-aware program Once it has completed and the 'bugs' have been found

and deleted, then I download and run the Google toolbar (which has a

built-in popup blocker) from toolbar.google.com and install it.

This will also help eliminate the popups from coming up.

Thanks for the question.
