Hi Carl,
Go into the control panel, then internet options and change the home page to one that doesn't drive you crackers.

Can you please tell me what version of internet explorer are you using.That you can check from the help tab located on the top of the internet explorer(about internet explorer).

If it is less than version 7,try to update it from Microsoft site and one more thing is your Pc is updating or not I mean did you ever saw any pop up like saying updates are ready or some thing like that.
