That is not a very good idea. You can check your Add-ons in your browsers to see if there are any add-ons that could be causing that problem. I will cease help you with this problem until you install and activate one of these AV programs. I recommend MicroSoft Security Essentials.

Remember to only install one antivirus!

1) Avast! Home Edition
2) AVG Free Edition
3) Avira AntiVir Personal
4) MicroSoft Security Essentials  All versions and all languages.
5) Comodo Antivirus (Uncheck during installation "Install Comodo SafeSurf..", Make Comodo my default search provider" and "Make Comodo Search my homepage" if you choose this one)
6) PC Tools AntiVirus Free Edition

It is strongly recommended that you run only one antivirus program at a time. Having more than one antivirus program active in memory uses additional resources and can result in program conflicts and false virus alerts. If you choose to install more than one antivirus program on your computer, then only one of them should be active in memory at a time.

This is not a virus. Since your Windows OS is not a legal version I cannot help you anymore. This is a rule of the forum.

At least tell me what can I do about it if it's not a virus. I cannot remove it, so what is it?

What happens when you change your home page back to Google?
