Fuck Yahoo... its taken over

Recommended Posts

I used Chrome as my default browser. 

Ive installed nothing. No tool bars. Visited no porn/torrents/etc (posting from work PC... damn straight Im not going to do that crap on this PC). But, every time I open a new tab or try and do a google search, this URL takes the fuck over

https://search.yahoo.com/?fr=hp-ddc-bd&type=dc-bcr-sm-rhb-32__alt__ddc_dsssyc_bd_com

 

Tried using Malwars Bytes, etc. to remove. No clue at ALL where the fuck this came from and why Yahoo has taken the fuck over Chrome. Ive removed all other searches from Chrome Settings. Ive restarted several times. Ive opened no attachments. Clean install of Chrome too

I know this is going to sound real dumb, but change your homepage/default search engine settings?

You may have removed whatever hijacked your shit, but the defaults it changed may remain.

Maybe you just set the default search engine to yahoo? Without noticing?

I use duckduckgo (on purpose). But Yahoo is also an option to choose from. Maybe you did without noticing.

I didnt, and this was the first thing I checked

Google has always been default, and Ive constantly removed the other whenever they've added themselves

if you have run all the tools you said you have and nothing dumb is installed (including any addons/extensions which you should also uninstall/disable) - reset ALL the browser settings to default.

Simple solution.........don't use Chrome :kjugh:

 

In all seriousness, look at your programs to see if something is odd. Also run Chrome and open Process\Task Manager and look for things out of ordinary. There might be something running that is not triggering antivirius etc... If this does not get fixed during the day I am happy to hop on TS this evening and help ya fix it :)

I *think* I might have fixed it... at least right now, its fine

1) Complete uninstall of all things Chrome/Google related
2) CCleaner, registry cleaner and browser cleaner
3) Complete wipe of all things Chrome related on my PC (fuck IE, but had to use that to look this shit up)
4) Restart PC, run CCleaner and ADW cleaner
5) Installed Chrome for Business. 

Seems to be running fine now. Ive done a combination of all the above already, but this combination seemed to have worked.

Fuck Yahoo. Look, Yahoo. I know you're a struggling and terrible company apart from your fantasy sports section. But please, if you install freaking AddWare again on my computer which redirects my freaking Google Search to your @#*(&@#( mother # Q(*$ #(* lousy $(* $@(#* #@% Yahoo Search, may your company completely die in a fire.

you could run this and take a look at the results to see if there is anything suspicous http://sourceforge.net/projects/hjt/

MS Safety Scanner is decent at finding crap too (if you haven't tried it that is)

have you checked your hosts file for a redirect entry?

Okay, if you have any other issues let me know. Also Make Sure To Run ALL Possible Blocking Plugins On Any Browser You Use! :)

You had a plugin take over your search bar. Its annoying, but not tragic once you figure out how to remove them.

Hate to point this out, but as others can testify....

Once you have kids, your brain doesn't function properly.  It changes, and you may have a very hard time with simple tasks.

2 daughters, 10 years, lots of alcohol, lots of grey hair...trust me, it only gets worse

      I need a game like tanks that isn't stupid. Something I can take a break for 15 minutes and play, and then get back to the other thing I need to be doing. Suggestions please.

      Fuck the FV4202. The tank lacks the firepower to do anything if your team sucks. It cant even farm on them dying. How the hell people 3 mark this? 4k dmg games are uber rare and its super easy to end up with 1k combined if the gun trolls you and your team folds... FFS

      EDIT: Nevermind - http://wotreplays.eu/site/5859757#karelia-snoregasm2-concept_1b 
      1 battle, 1 Ace tanker. Has insane armour, is fast as a medium, has no weakspots frontally from what I can tell, has insane gun handling. WTF WG?!

      The Panzer IV from the Girls und Panzer Anime seems to make it into the game.
      https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2021/04/19/update-1-12-1-🇩🇪-pz-kpfw-iv-ausf-h-ankou/

      Funnily enough. It is propably one of the most realistic premium tanks or tanks in general we got in a long time. Despide being from an Anime.

      Been struggling with tier 10 since coming back - jesus christ this is awful. If you don't play something OP you feel like a tier 9 in a tier 10 game. 
      Got an account with a 0 game FV215b that I marked (69 games, just barely 4k dpg lmao) - wound up running the equipment piece that prevents fires and the same directive after the same amount of fires as amount of games in a 10 game session (got lit 3 times in one game...) but after that I never got set on fire again. Totally worth putting those up and giving up vents so you can actually use the HP without a fuel tank fire. Been noticing that a lot of casemate TDs are running new equipment as well (7.5s was pretty much enough RLD to permatrack anything until it dies and it is not anymore. It's closer to 6, so I'm assuming it's the equipment since it also varies heavily.)
       
      907 yoloing with optics+directive is sort of working, I'm keeping 85 but getting good enough of a session without a derp to fall back down after climbing up is so rare with how common the absolutely worst maps are. I have played 8 times the amount of Erlenberg as I have Prokh (assault and encounter enabled), I also get a lot of Kharkov and Abbey that keep showing up too and these maps are just too poorly designed to get a good enough gameplan to fulfill the damage requirements. There's just no play that works well enough. 
       
      I tried tier 8 as well, and it's like a different game played on the same board. You get away with so much stupid shit because of gaps in view range and the overall skill level. It makes me feel like my mechanics are super clean as I can poke in to tanks pre aimed at me and fire, pull into safety/unpennable angle before they fire - but at tier 10 that is just wishful thinking. 
       
      Long way to go, I hate being this derpy in game quality which is what I'm going to work on but tier 10 is so ass..
