Every time I search in google it automatically redirects to Yahoo search. I have tried countless things. Setting Google as default search engine, resetting google chrome, re-downloading google chrome, restricting Yahoo in internet options, using chrome cleaner, removing all ab-normal programs, using malwarebytes, countless other anti-virus programs. I even set google as default on Microsoft Edge. ALL of these provided temporary solutions which lasted about 1-2 searches before going back to yahoo redirect. Please Help!
In" extensions" - accessed as described above - I found something called "Tabs to Windows". I may have installed this at some point but it would have been months ago as I do not now recall when or why. I deleted it & got rid of the Yahoo problem.
I didn't download any programs / apps / extenstions today & in fact I rarely do. But somehow today my pc became "infected". My feeling is that "Tabs to windows" is either a fake app, or if it's normally assumed to be reliable, something (virus) latched onto / into it & caused the Yahoo issue.
Search every single non-green (whitelisted in 'freefixer' terms) entry very carefully...(or, take screenshots of all non-green entries and post links to them for us to look over; I'd be surprised if nothing showed up)
I'd also check all tasks in task scheduler very caerfully as well, deleting anything/everything you are not sure about...
There should also be an option for starting chrome without extensions / addons.
You should remove any chrome extensions that look strange.
Copy the above into the address bar "in Chrome" to see your chrome extensions.
My only google chrome extensions are Google Docs, Google Docs Offline, Google Sheets and Google Slides.
Any extensions but those 4 should be cause for concern.
Deleting the HOSTS file did not work, (With a Restart). I'm at the point where I assume its an extension as when I go into incognito with searches with google every time. I have the 4 extensions you have plus uBlock Origin, Overwatch Wallpapers HD New Tab Themes, HTTPS Everywhere and History Open. History Open is the most strange to me, I never installed it, I cant disable it or uninstall it. And it shows up no where else. Where you would press delete it says "Installed by enterprise policy."
