do not go to that site, usually it is something spyware does is to trick people into thinking they need to buy their software to remove it.

just right click it/ and send a short cut to your desk top/ now right click it again/ go to properties/ then click the box where it says find target.

then delete it from that. also see that in internet options in the control panel, that it has'nt changed your homepage.
