Web browser homepage problem....

I have my homepage set up for Google, but everytime I start up my browser it becomes a different website. I change the homepage back to Google in the options, but when I close my browser and start it up the homepage changes again.

Also, I've been noticing that whenever I type in a web address and the browser starts to load it, the address will change with a new beginning extension (www.boredlife.com/the name of the website I typed in), but the site I typed in will load.

I've emptied my cache and deleted history and temp files, but the problem still exists. Anyone know what this is and how I can get rid of it?
