What would cause my starter to malfunction, make real loud noise when first turn on car? It also made my positive terminal battery connection melt, killed a brand new battery and made a lot of smoke. The car would not want to turn off also, even if I turn the key to the off position.

Internal short circuit most probably, or a faulty starter switch, have the starter replaced first.
