Lost Google chrome home page

Hi there,

I downloaded a screen saver that must of had what I believe would be a malware of some kind.

every time I want to go on my google home page, I always end up on this crapy page with the following adresse which I can't seem to get rid of :

Search No matter what I do I cant seem to get back on my google home page.

Also, when I go on the Google chrome favorites pages, I seem to have lost all my windows and end up with this crapy looking list of my favorit sites.

Here is the first attachment, describing my new (unwanted homepage). the second attachement is the type favorites page I had before, and finaly the third attachement is the new page I am left with

How can I find my old pages back ?

You should be able to go into Chrome`s settings and put your homepage back to what you had.
