IE opens with homepage of iexplore.exe

The OS I am using is XP Professional. When I click on IE, the browser opens with address of: "http://files/Internet%20Explorer/iexplore.exe
Simply change the IE home page to one of your choosing, such as https://searchwindowsserver.techtarget.com/ If your homepage resets itself again, you may be the victim of spyware, and I recommend that you use a program called AdAdware or SpyBot to scan your system to remove it.
