First thing you need to do is attempt to restore your old homepage.
go to: tools, scroll down to internet options, where it says "Address" place the www.name.com here.
Do this and then press "OK"
try your homepage now. If that works great. You can get on your homepage, but your not finished.
You need to d/l spybot and ad-aware. install those programs and run them. make sure you check for updates and delete anything they find.
Also, d/l CCleaner, this deletes all the garbage files that take up space on your computer, go here to get it: http://www.majorgeek...wnload4191.html
Do you have any anti virus? if not use the FREE AVG anti-virus
YOu need to protect your computer as best as possible. Changing your homepage back to normal will get you going, but you need to kill the program that changed it.
Last , run HJT (highjackthis) and post a log if all else fails
