Information.com redirect virus

Hi there. I would like to consult my present computer problem. My Internet browser is redirected to Information.com. I don’t know how it happens. Before this, my computer begins to show some signs of virus infection. My security software blocks access to http://dsparking.com. After that, I never saw any alerts. My antivirus may have been disabled after visiting the site. The page I mention Information.com is also the same page as http://dsparking.com.

It affects my Internet Explorer and Firefox. Good thing that Google Chrome is not infected by this http://dsparking.com virus. Using hijackthis log as recommended by a friend does not help me solve the redirect problem. Is there any other tool you can suggest to stop the virus from delivering my home page to Information.com?

Waiting for your response. Thank you very much.

    Oh good, glad that worked aomctatiually! For now I’m just going to use the domain and WordPress hosting, I like the ease of use with them, and don’t really want to learn about WordPress.org, etc quite yet (baby steps, haha!) If we ever get big enough to have issues with WordPress hosting I’ll definitely be switching to something else, though.
