Windows 10: Yahoo invasion in Chrome Solved

    Yahoo invasion in Chrome


    I feel certain it cam from some other program I install without paying attention, but I now have a problem in Chrome. Every time I open the program it goes to my home page as it should. However, for some reason it automatically opens a second tab for Yahoo Search. I do not want nor do I use Yahoo Search and would like to remove this annoyance. Any thoughts?

    Go to Chrome Settings / On startup / Open a specific set of pages / Set pages. I bet yu have Yahoo set there. If so, just delete it.

    Actually, I thought of that and Yahoo has been removed there. This is something different.

    Some more ideas:
    1. Check for any Chrome extensions causing the problem.
    2. Try setting Chrome to defaults if you haven't done this.
    3. Search the Registry for instances of "Yahoo" and try and work out what is loading it.
    4. Install Autoruns and search for Yahoo to see if anything is loading it.

    Found it!!!! In settings under "on start up" it showed two tabs one was my homepage the other was Yahoo. I deleted Yahoo. Problem solved. Thanks for everyone's patience.
