Browser keeps jumping back to homepage

I have noticed recently when browsing, I suddenly get kicked away from the
page I was browsing and redirected to my home page. The page I was browsing
gets minimised to the taskbar.

The address bar in my homepage shows the homepage@address.co.uk/refresh=true

Does Anybody know what is going on??

Thanks.

Do a thorough check for malware, following all of the steps at one of these

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing programs like Messenger Plus,
whose ads for malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince
you that you owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.
