Chrome opens to Yahoo

Recommended Posts

Every time I open Chrome it automatically takes me to a Yahoo searchbar, url: http://uk.search.yahoo.com/?type=586383&fr=spigot-yhp-ch

 

This issue only began today (probably when I downloaded bittorrent, oops), and now no matter what settings I change Chrome always opens to Yahoo. I see this problem has been dealt with before on these forums but the steps involved looked a little complicated and involved the postings of logs so I was hoping to get some help. Thanks.

Next,

 

We need to run an online AV scan to ensure there are no remnants of any infection left on your system that may have been missed. This scan is very thorough and well worth running, it can take several hours please be patient and let it complete:

 

Run Eset Online Scanner

 

**Note** You will need to use Internet explorer for this scan - Vista and win 7 right click on IE shortcut and run as admin

 

Go to Eset web page http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/ to run an online scan from ESET.

 


Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
click on the Run ESET Online Scanner button
Tick the box next to YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
Click Start
When asked, allow the add/on to be installed
Click Start
Make sure that the option Remove found threats is unticked
Click on Advanced Settings, ensure the options
Scan for potentially unwanted applications, Scan for potentially unsafe applications, and Enable Anti-Stealth Technology are ticked.
Click Scan
wait for the virus definitions to be downloaded
Wait for the scan to finish

 

When the scan is complete

 


If no threats were found
put a checkmark in "Uninstall application on close"
close program
report to me that nothing was found

 

If threats were found

 


click on "list of threats found"
click on "export to text file" and save it as ESET SCAN and save to the desktop
Click on back
put a checkmark in "Uninstall application on close"
click on finish

 

close program

 

copy and paste the report in next reply

 

Let me see those logs, also give an update on any remaining issues or concerns...

 

Kevin
