    check out Fedora Core 1 from Red Hat download page. VERY nice installer and it went in without a hitch. I've used every flavor of linux and I really liked the ease of this one. Great for beginners! NIC install was a little weird, but I've seen worse.

    It sounds like you have some spyware adding sites to your favs and re-arranging. Do you run Adaware or the like? I use IE as well as Firbird, Mozilla and Opera and I haven't seen anything like that.
