No antivirus is 100% perfect unfortunately.
There is a comprehensive and reliable removal guide here: Remove Sweet-Page.com hijack (Virus Removal Guide)

Virus scanners are never 100% detection that said try scanning with some of the free scanners mentioned here
use getsusp to submit the exe file for the malware so Mcafee will note this and add detection to its engine/dats.
Gees Peter posted same as well I actually wonder if there is a exe file involved
Thank you very much. System is scanning now. I hope all will be right. I Have one question. How to control all process on browser, like background download of viruses etc.
sorry for that if your system got infected. Let me explain some keyfacts.
When using a signature based technology you will not be able to detect any threat. There are so many different ways to infect a system. Some examples:
- Code is dynamically generated on endpoint.
- Script Code included in the HTML Code
- File less infection
- Malware which exists of several files where any file for its own is not malicious.
- Encrypted files which cannot be scanned.
- Infecting the system using a vulnerability.
- The infection occurs over time (e.g. some weeks and step-by-step)
and much much more. As you can see there are many many situations where a signature based technology is not able to protect. Therefor most of the vendors are investigating much power to build behavior based technologies. Malware prevention is not only installing a software product, it is much more a mind set, a strategy and
Finally, signature based technology (this belongs to any vendor) is always reactive. This means, no sample, no signature, no protection...
Regarding your threat. To analyze what happened exactly your system has to be inspected. Otherwise no one can tell you exactly why your system got infected.
So i did a short analysis for the site.
1) virustotal.com: Only one vendor from 65 defines the site as malicious:https://www.virustotal.com/de/url/49399c04bf5fb885c7242dd33886b0e6e6388fedd592bf ff106dcaa766e8351b/analysis/
2) The behavior analysis shows some more information.
If you are connecting to http://sweet-page.com there is content automatically loaded from another site.
As you can see it is not so easy to tell why your system got infected. For a detailed analysis more information is needed.
- Which browser was used.
- What are your user rights on your system. Are you an administrator.
There is an information page available in the community with several tools which you can use to inspect your system.
Finally, have you been able to clean your system(s)?
Hope this makes it a little bit more clear.
Thank you for your support Ex_Brit.

As Colleague Ex_Brit stated. I highly recommend removing (SpyHunter) from your system. In addition to the programs installed itself, are bundled applications that are considered (PUPS) Potentially Unwanted Programs. It can do more harm to your machine,than good.
