I am using Google Chrome and my homepage continuously goes to this fake yahoo page. I have seen forums instructing other people on how to resolve this issue but the instructions vary for each situation and require logs from the posters computer. I would really appreciate assistance to correct this issue. Thank you in advance!!

Also you should look in Programs ...to Uninstall any Spigot that may be there.
Look in Chromes plug ins for the same.  Disabling Plugins in Google Chrome.

  • Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.
  • Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".
  • The tool will open and start scanning your system.
  • Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.
  • On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.
  • Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.
