The value is "" I've tried deleting it multiple times, but it just keeps coming back. I've done scans with Hitman Pro, SuperAntiSpyware, Malware Bytes, and Spybot Search and Destroy (As this was caused by a virus), and none of them are picking up any traces of malware.

No matter what I do, it always comes back. I've changed the internet options in the control panel to the real google, and that seems to be working for internet explorer, but not firefox.

The thing that scares me, however, is that a quick google search on the web site (I have no script installed, and it made the website not load, much to my gratitude), the first (And only) line of information it has is a set of google links, exactly what google has on their frontpage. Gmail is a dead giveaway.
