Did you clear IE history? cookies passwords etc.

Clear all and try again.

Try in safe mode

Check you hosts file as well - I use MVPS hosts file to prevent this as well as WinPatrol Pro to monitor the hosts file.

I would recommend that you reset Internet explorer and delete everything on it. check if you have any ads-ons and disable all of them.

Download hijackthis.de, run the scan and attach the log here.
this would help in troubleshooting your issue.

For host files, before running MVPS please post your current host file content by navigating in to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\host <<the file.
