Yontoo reappears with each MWB scan

Sorry to be dim - I have MW premium. Your link says that my version, 3.2.2 is out of date. MWB itself says it is up to date.

Assuming that 3.3 is really the right thing: When I click to update, I get a purchase page with multiple options. Do I have to purchase Premium again to download? Or better - which option on the download page should I use? The free version?

I've downloaded & installed the latest.

However, I'm giving up. It takes 30+ minutes for every scan cycle to see if Yontoo is still there - plus, the Chrome settings do not look like anything in the linked 'how to' and I have no idea how to access Google Sync.

I'll just use Edge.

(Puzzled as to how Yontoo got into my system - why didn't Malwarebytes block it?)

Can't get a screen shot - beyond the 2 default search engines (Google, Bing), there is a huge list. I tried a fairly powerful scrolling capture and ran out of memory. Chrome seems to have listed nearly every site I've regularly visited - and a few I've been to only once - as a "search engine."

Right.

This time, only one,, a PUP called Trovi (which has not been there previously)....

Why isn't Malwarebytes preventing these from joining my system? <-- that's a question asked in a neutral tone of voice: is there something about these nasties that makes them undiscoverable?

In the first screenshot, delete the "Trovi" website that is listed ( in the "Show home button" section).

And the definitions for these infections were added 2-3 weeks ago. So they were already on your system.
