Return all search setting to googles when Comodo firewall is installed

We just installed in our Windows 8 PC an update from Comodo.  For some strange reason, now all updates forces you to either check-mark 'yahoo search engine set as default' or an option that protects against malicios software.  We can't installed until we check one.  Since the malicious option we done need, we are force to check yahoo.

The problem is that we have all set to google.  So in order to install comodo update, we had to choose yahoo engine.

How can i change all search engines configurations back to google?

May want to check this out


Enter "about:config" into the url bar. Proceed past the warning, and search for "Yahoo".
Carefully scroll through the results, looking for bold entries containing yahoo and comodo.
Right click these entries, and select "reset". Restart.

enter chrome://chrome/settings/ into omnibar. set select box to google. Click Manage Search Engines, and delete yahoo. Restart.

Click the little gear in upper right hand corner and choose Internet Options. Under the general tab, click change search defaults Settings. Delete Yahoo.
