I have tried just about everything on the Internet but nothing has worked so far. As soon as Chrome start it's redirected to   https://search.yahoo.com/?fr=hp-ddc-bd&type=dc-bcr-ob-rhb-30__alt__ddc_dsssyc_bd_com
I am turning to you guys in desperation!!! Any suggestion is welcome

Sounds like you have Malware

 

Do you have malwarebytes installed?

The toolbar is probably listed in Programs and Features (or the Windows 10 equivalent of it). Try looking in there.

I would use tools, but most of the tools that we use here for removal are untested on Windows 10.

No, nothing there. It's a fairly new machine, only 20 programs listed under Program and Features

Scan your system first to make sure if malware has infected you. You could also change your home page on the Chrome settings. Try using VPN next time. Its more reliable and safe from malwares and viruses.

A VPN only protects your privacy... it does nothing against malware.

I have done 3 different scans using Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro and  Adwcleaner, I found only 4 malwares and they have all been eliminated, but  as soon as Chrome start it's redirected to  https://search.yahoo.com/?fr=hp-ddc-bd&type=dc-bcr-ob-rhb-30__alt__ddc_dsssyc_bd_com

Yes, many times, that never worked either.

The Yahoo search engine is a legit one, so I doubt it will get detected.

There should be a choice to change your home page in Chrome's settings... try that and see if the Yahoo page returns.

As I have said, I have tried everything suggested on the Internet, trust me, I have tried it all. I have removed and re-installed Chrome, run numerous scans, reset Chrome, change home page, etc, etc......It's a real mystery why nothing is working and that pesky and annoying redirect is still happening. I was able to get rid of it from Firefox, but Chrome has been a monumental challenge to date!
