Earlier today I did a stupid, and got myself some weird malware that is hijacking my search bar.
It calls itself "chromesearch.today" and has made itself my default search engine, and somehow managed to make it unselectable in the chrome settings menu (making it undeletable according to all the basic guides i could find) and also changed my options for all other search engines to only be "edit" or "remove from list", so i can't just make a different one my default.
The way it works is that when I type something into my search bar it first opens up a url for about two seconds that looks like this: https://chromesearch.today/search?q=stop&uid=qTO6G2jchxlsv6NWMga93LlSYmVrItLW4te4w0UfqRmI3B50SmdkAGT36yUbL%2F0yk%2BfVbbtEK3C5rVX%2FslOmPK5e8GuY6CBe&pid=fob (managed to snag a ctrl + c in there) before redirecting me to an extremely fake yahoo knock off that is nothing like the actual thing. The url here is something like: https://dk.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=ima&hsimp=yhs-batch1&p=stop&type=batch1q50000008_nsq with the "dk" being to translate everything into danish, the language my browser was set to when I accidentally installed this.
I have run Malwarebytes but it didn't fix the issue, and I'm now looking at a total system reboot if I can't figure out how to get rid of this. Hopefully someone on here can help, because I am officially way out of my depth here!
