Google Search chrome browser REDIRECTION!!

May 8, 2014 at 08:27:57
Specs: Windows 8
I need your guidance/help. GOOGLE SEARCH is my default search engine where as at times, goes redirected to yahoo engine with such as “ us.yhs.search.com/yhs/search…. “ etc.etc. I have done the basic attempts to remove through Google Chrome settings but in vain.

Relevant details are : Using Lenovo t Z-580 model laptop with Win-8 platform – Browser – Google Chrome + AVG 2014 Anti-virus and Malwarebytes.
Please advise me suitable steps how to go about removal of this problem for which I shall be thankful to you. Please help.
Await eagerly.

Firstly Edit out your email address or the spammers engines will find it and overwhelm you with junk email forever. We answer right here on the forum.

Run these two programs for starters:
MalwareBytes (use green icon top right):
http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...

ADWCleaner from blue download button top right. SAVE file then double click it to run program:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
It is usually OK to run the Clean after running the Scan.

Please paste both logs/reports on here so that we can see what they found.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If the above 2 progs don't fix the problem, you may want to do a bootscan with Avast free:

and move ALL it finds to the chest
