I was recently on opera and noticed a search bar pop up on the top of the screen, when you click on the search bar it takes you to a fake search engine and whenever you search something it takes you to a yahoo page I figured it was malware so I even downloaded Malwarebytes right off the bat and ran a scan. Nothing was found. I found the malware in control panel and deleted it but it is still there. I've re-ran Malwarebytes and nothing is found but I can't find a way to prevent this search bar from appearing on the top of my screen. Any thoughts on what I need to do?
I have tried, (seemingly), every method to rid my computer of a browser redirect virus. Chrome's "clean-up" doesnt detect anything, and neither does the malwarebyte scanner. The virus doesnt appear to act like any other i've seen or read about. Google is still the default browser, and is only redirected when i click on a link provided by a google search. In which case, a new window is opened with the link, with the original window turning into a yahoo search result with the original search. Again, i have tried restoring windows, uninstalling chrome completely, scanning with both chrome tools and malwarebytes, but have come to no avail.
