I guess you mean the 'Home Page'? Yes, some of the 'underground' websites do change your home page (through scripts), you can prevent this using symantec internet security, which blocks malicious scripts etc.

Goto windows update and get all the security updates available.

IE has lots of security problems like this, if the updates don't fix it, you could consider a better browser.
