Remove pop-up Virus

My homepage has been replaced with without my permission. I can’t get rid of this on my browser. This annoying pop-up happened about 2 days ago. I thought it was associated with the plug-in I installed by accident, so I uninstalled it immediately. But this still happens. How to fix this browser problem?

What is Virus? Virus is one of the most irritating browser hijackers which trigger tons of product ads, sponsored links, coupons and other spam on your infected computer. Usually, this virus is merged with various online downloads and installed into your computer without your knowledge. As soon as this virus gets inside your computer, your online activities will be seriously disturbed by endless promotion ads which continue to pop up on your screen out of control. Once you click on these pop-ups accidentally, you may probably be misled to some malicious websites which contain potentially dangerous infections. Similar to Pop-ups Virus and Http:// Popup Virus, this virus will add unfamiliar websites into your favorites or bookmarks, and some strange icons will appear on your desktop as well. Furthermore, this virus will take advantage of cookies to gather information about your browsing habits, and then it will transmit your sensitive data like your search queries and account details to remote hackers to conduct illegal acts. Besides, this virus will damage your infected computer by introducing other vexing virus and potentially unwanted programs into it. And this virus will create odd shortcuts on your home screen and change your browser settings to damage your web browsing experience. So we strongly recommend you to remove this virus at once to prevent further damage. Virus Screenshot: Virus will do much harm to the infected computer:
