My browser searches are being hijacked by malware... HELP!!!
Good day. When I do browser searches in Google or Yahoo my searches seem to be getting hijacked. There are icons all around the edge of browser page. I think it may be malware. It is very annoying and slows my computer down a great deal. I have McAfee Total Protection and ran a scan last night. It took all night to run. It found 8 "issues" which I quarantined. Some of them were named ad..something or other and PUP .. something or another. I rebooted and tried a search and the same thing happened. I am truly ticked at McAfee as I thought that this protection software would take care of these types of issues.
I have seen malewarebytes and other products that promise to solve this issue but now I am gun-shy of trying anything.
