security check cannot run as it should and I get some kind of error inside the program saying "Could not locate the disk path"...
Are you downloading the program directly to your computer or are you trying to run it from a CD?

* Go to Start > Run and type mrt.exe then press Enter on the keyboard).
* (Vista and Windows 7 users go to Start and type mrt.exe in the search box then press Enter on the keyboard.
* Click Next.
* Choose Full Scan and click Next.
* Once the scan is finished click View detailed results of the scan.

Look through the list and let me know if anything was found infected.

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) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
2) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
3) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
4) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] All versions and all languages.
5) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (Uncheck during installation "Install Comodo SafeSurf..", Make Comodo my default search provider" and "Make Comodo Search my homepage" if you choose this one)
6) [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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?
