A few things have happened to me with out my permission and most was caused by Spy Ware.
You may not realise that you could have deep in your directories some small programs that where placed their after installing some downloaded scripts or free software.
If your getting pop ups or things added to your browser with out your permission then I would seariously take a look at the Spy Ware issue.
Their are many JS's as well that will add a site to your favorites but a pop up message usually appear, however the message may say nothing about adding the page to your favorites, it could just disguise it self as an advert then you click ok to close which gives the command to write to your favorites folder.
Just a few things that I believe could have happened but the Spy Ware is the most common and should be checked out.
