Default Home Page Keeps Changing

My default home page is freeserve but it sometime changes to some poxy search engine that i've never heard off. When this search engine appears as the default page it also throws a load of porn / gabling web sites into my favorite folder.
Tried using AVG / Trojan software but hasnt found anything.
Any ideas on what is causing this and how to get over it?
