    You probably have a Browser Hijack virus. Download avast antivirus and use their browser cleanup. That may get rid of it

    Something else might have been installed when you downloaded that virus.

    Try using Norton Power Eraser. Go to Advanced and select Unwanted Application Scan. After that try a System Scan. Used this a lot and its proven to remove a lot of problems on my friends who unwittingly installed a virus.
