    Abola James...   When you say ....."has been embedded"
    do you mean whenever you attempt to open your homepage .....you are redirected to the one you mention .If thats what is happening ..you are infected with a browser hijacker .........You must D/L hijackthis.....from http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

    download it to your desktop ..........run a scan and save the logfile .......then post it here and we can tell you what to mark for removal .
