IE Homepage Automatically Changes?

Recently (and randomly), my IE homepage is set to some weird thing that I'm SURE that I didn't set. It links to some macromedia .zip file (on a fortune city server, I think). I always have it set for 'about:blank'. How does it keep changing to this weird URL? Is it some spyware program that changes it (another non-computer savvy user often downloads and installs clients like iMesh and other programs that screw up your computer when the "Default" installation is selected)? Thanks.

I'd run ad-aware (from lafasoftusa.com) and do a full system virus scan (probably just spyware). Also look in msconfig to see if anything is in startup that shouldn't be.

What a long strange trip it's been. =)
