Whitesmoke new customized websearch is the only search it will allow me to use in the search bar next to the address box.

 

Also when I'm on different websites an ad will pop up on the lower right hand side of the page and if I hover over it before going to a different page it will expand and take over most of the browsers page. I cant get it to close unless I close the browser or hit the back button.

 

Here is the malwarebytes scan I ran.
