I have been a subscriber for 3-4 years now and am disappointed that Trend malware/spyware and antivirus was unable to block and stop " http://newssci.com/sear3/ " from downloading and is now ingrained as my home page on all my internet browsers.

At this moment this is now my home page on firefox, internet explorer and google chrome and I cannot change it regardless of how many TREND MICRO scans.

There is very little info from your description but if you homepage has been changed this is a chance that you may have installed a Potentially Unwanted Application (PUA).

You can refer to this article to help yourself against PUA: https://esupport.trendmicro.com/en-us/home/pages/technical-support/maximum-security/1105484.aspx
On the given page, you may want to perform uninstallation of PUA as well as reverting your browser settings back such as removing unwanted Add-ons or extensions as well as fixing your homepage.

Try it and let me know how it works.
