After downloading drivers for my computer I've somehow downloaded malware and now my home page is stuck on this stupid site called holasearch.com and I can't seem to get rid of it.

I would suggest following the advice from the topic here Available Assistance for Possibly Infected Computers and having one of the Experts assist you with looking into your issue.

@ Jim_Medley:

Until AdvancedSetup returns....
I'm sure you are only trying to be helpful. :)
However, regular members are not permitted to offer malware removal advice.
For everyone's safety, only certain, trained and qualified members are permitted to do so.
Moreover, this work is done in a dedicated area of the forum, >>HERE<<, where only the OPs and the trained helpers are permitted to post.
Thanks anyway for your assistance.
No offense intended. :)

@ chaaz:

Please continue to work with your malware helper, Gringo, over in the malware removal section.
He will get you cleaned up.
