Hmm I see, test out your other computers that may have that problem and try to change the home page on them.
If successfull, I recommend you update to the latest of IE8 or go for IE9.
Change your home page in your other browsers as well to make sure it's only that problem.
Pardon me for asking, but did you install 7 just recently ?
Reason being because I noticed in your screen shots, that you may have been starting with a fresh new install.
If thats the case, let windows update patch up stuff for you, and it should patch up ie8 , if not just skip it and offer IE9 that microsoft has just released.
Last, if you want to, give Microsoft essentials a try or do avast free edition.
Both work great, but sometimes either AV will have a advantage the others might not at finding pests very quickly.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
avast! Free Antivirus | Download Antivirus Protection Software
For your java problem try updating it with this:
Perform the windowsx86.exe offline download so it will be quicker and more convient for you.
Let me know what happens over the weekend, take care.
