It sounds to me like some sort of maleware has altered your hosts file. 
    The hosts file is the first place your browser looks to resolve a 
site address into the actual IP address that is used to access the site. 
  So if the IP address that is associated with 
gets changed to a porn site, that's where you wind up.  If you do a 
Google search on "hosts file" you will find a lot of information that 
will help you locate it on your system and clean it up.  I'm sure that 
there are a lot of tools that you can find that will make the job 
easier, and a lot of security tools will prevent maleware from making 
alterations to your hosts file.
