I recently found a suspicious process running in my task manager called searchprotection.exe. I instantly assumed it was a virus that caused my google chrome homepage to change to "https://search.yahoo.com/?type=599486&fr=spigot-yhp-ch" and every time I do a "google search" where I'd normally place in a web address, it does a yahoo search instead. From the task manager, I opened up the file location and pressed the uninstall button which removed the file, however my google chrome homepage has yet to be reverted. I did numerous scans with Superantispyware and Malwarebytes hoping to root out all remaining traces of the virus. There were no results indicating any remaining infections on my computer, however I feel slightly paranoid that my lcomputer is still infected since google chrome still redirects me to the link I provided earlier. I tried a clean reinstall of google chrome, hoping it would help clean out my system but upon reinstallation, google chrome still redirects me to the site I previously listed, so I assume the problem still remains. Maybe I just have to change my homepage back to my normal homepage but I'm worried my computer is still infected. Any suggestions?
P.S. When typing in google.com, and when the page loads, does it always have an extension, such as "https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl"? Or was it just supposed to simply be "https://www.google.com".
Thank you for your time!
EDIT: I also scanned with programs called AdwCleaner and Junkware Removal Toll by Thisisu, however that didn't necessarily seem to solve the problem, just cleaned some other unrelated issues up.
