    You'll have to install spyware adware removal tools and scanners. You also might want to do a virus scan. Look up the name of the website on google and you'll normally find posts about it and how to fix it.

    It sounds like something hijacked your homepage setting. You can change that from your Control Panel *before* you go online and it will probably be okay.

    Control Panel > Internet Options > Home Page

    If that doesn't work then you probably have a parasite on your browser, in which case check www.doxdesk.com.

    You need the proper registry keys removed, before that will ever go away.

    "Adaware," and "SpyBot Search and Destroy," are a good start, as is doxdesk.
