    Just noticed that my google searches redirect to yahoo search engine within google chrome. I ran malwarebytes and cccleaner and both didn't get rid of the issue. I tried to go to extensions in google chrome (to see if I inadvertently installed some yahoo extension) and all it shows is a blank page called 'about:blank' (I have several extensions installed but none are yahoo based). I then tried to clear browsing data but get same blank page (about blank). So it looks like it is preventing me from changing any settings in chrome.

    Any idea what I can do here? I assume I have some adware or malware that is really tough to remove.

    PS - i don't have this issue with internet explorer (which I don't ever use though).

    Also, I can access google fine in incognito with chrome...
