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

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.

ADWCleaner. Try that

Did. Nope

Fuck Yahoo

And their children too may they die in a fire

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. 

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.

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

I removed all plugins, the issue still persisted.

Like I said, wtf?

do some more google... I remember fighting this battle once and the plugin was in a very strange place...I forget what I had to do, but it was pretty weird.

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
