It's possible you downloaded a trojan. Reset Safari and see if it still happens. Additionally, make sure you're not autostarting Safari:

it's not the home page. My homepage is still the same. This only happens when I turn on the computer. Safari automatically opens and goes to that site. Which looks familiar :x

The part in red made me chuckle. I'd chalk it up to improved efficiency

I always knew Macs were designed with the user in mind. After a while it intuitively learns your browsing habits and now automatically goes there for you.

Did you follow the link I posted above to insure that safari was not autostarting? If that didn't help, open a terminal and type the following in bold at the prompt:

Code:
$ crontab -l
crontab: no crontab for xxxxxxxx
$ ls -l .bash{rc,_profile}*
ls: .bash_profile*: No such file or directory
ls: .bashrc*: No such file or directory
$ cat .profile

# MacPorts Installer addition on 2010-06-28_at_20:50:27: adding an appropriate PATH variable for use with MacPorts.
export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
# Finished adapting your PATH environment variable for use with MacPorts.

$ ps -ef | grep -i [s]afari
  501 40421   176   0   0:01.11 ??         0:05.39 /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/MacOS/Safari -psn_0_22152479

# Take note of the third column in red above

$ ps -p 176
  PID TTY           TIME CMD
  176 ??         0:10.23 /sbin/launchd
post the results. I know this is all complicated, but it'll help figure out what might be starting Safari. Please also sanitize your command prompt, I don't want to know your name.

damn. try turning Private browsing on, it might eliminate anything from being saved to your browser. It does not prevent cookies though, which has to be done manually.
