This is probably a virus or worm which doesn't harm your computer system but only opens the link i.e. www.thenewspedia.com uncondinationably. Actually this is a browser hijacker effecting IE (Internet Explorer) and Firefox. It simply promotes thenewspedia by opening up the site randomly while you are browsing or opens up along with homepage even if you have no set it as your homepage.
As a browser hijacker, it takes controll over your browser so you should immediately remove it as to avoid future harms. So here's the removal steps:
This is caused by a file named nissan.exe and here I have described 3 methods to remove it.
Open registry editor by going to Start->run->regedit and hit enter.
you will see an entry named "taskman" with a value similar to "C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-3028898713-081331...
Double click it and you'll see its path like C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-3028898713-0813311981-684376638-1852\nissan.exe
This file is the cause of the mess as it tells windows to execute the file. So, you have to delete the key "taskman" but before that copy your path address (C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-3028898713-0813311...\) except nissan.exe and navigate to the folder by pasting it in run. Now delete the key.
When you open the folder recycler folder nothing will be shown. This is because it is set to super hidden state. Use "attrib -h -s -r" command in run like start->run->[attrib -h -s -r C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-3028898713-0813311981-684376638-1852\nissan.exe] to remove any attribute and then delete it.
Or alternatively, you can use "unlocker" to delete the folder. This is a free and handy utility to move or kill or delete files when locked by other windows services.
Use malwarebytes anti-malware. This is a free tool for removing any malwares, worms, trojans, etc and is updated frequently so I would suggest trying www.malwarebytes.org and downloading their free anti-malware as you might have other worms too.
You can use this direct removal tool too
