I am running Chrome on Windows 10.

About 3 weeks ago Yahoo search started coming up in place of Google search.

I did everything suggested on line to fix it, but nothing works.

Assuming it was malware I ran 4 antivirus programs.  One found PC-APPS-STORE and deleted 37 of 39 files.  I got rid of the rest by uninstalling it, but it didn't help. (Windows Defender, Super Antispyware, Malwarebytes, and Total Antivirus)

It WILL allow me to change to Bing search.  While that is certainly better than Yahoo (which seems like a high school project) I want Google.  When I change from Bing to Google I get Yahoo back again.

HELP!

For what it is worth, I had this problem. My solution was to go into Google settings, extensions, change the search engine from Yahoo, then delete the Yahoo extension.

 

Hope this helps.
