More info please...

Internet connection, adware/spyware software, firewalls, when it started, any new software, etc.

Quick thoughts:

Switch to Firefox or another alternative, even if you don't have an IE problem. Can you connect to the internet then?

Have you tried a System Restore to a time when it worked?

What do you mean "got internet explorer as my home page?" Do you mean it is your default browser?

Why not forget about IE and download Firefox? You shouldn't have the problem with it.

You can download it at:

You will be able to import your favorites, etc.
