I downloaded a trial version of a program called Direct MIDI to MP3 Converter, and apparently it was somehow connected to PHP Nuke. Upon downloading it, I suddenly also received a bunch of PHP Nuke bookmarks and other things.

I'm using Mozilla Firefox, and I'm used to simply typing the name of a site into the address bar to go to it (so instead of typing, say, "www.youtube.com", I just type "youtube" and I'm taken there). But after this download, this doesn't happen anymore. Instead, whenever I type something in that isn't a full address, it takes me to some PHP Nuke download finder type of page.

I do not want this, and I'm trying to fix it, but I simply cannot. I've removed everything PHP Nuke-related from my computer, and I cannot find any kind of PHP Nuke add-on or anything to remove.

So, how exactly do I get rid of this? It's seriously starting to make the word "malware" pop up in my head, and I'm growing really tired of it.

I've never heard of such a thing. To be honest it sounds like malware. I would try running your virus scanner to get rid of it or if you have the option do a System Restore.
