Even though I have my settings to start my homepage to Yahoo.com and when I open a new tab it's supposed to open on the google search page but no matter what I do both open to a yahoo search page and I can't seem to get it to change back.  

 

When I click on the home button it will then go to the yahoo homepage without a problem but if I do a search from there it uses the yahoo search instead of the google search it is set, and supposed to use.

 

I have run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, a virus scan and cleaned up some things but can't get my computer to start with the Yahoo homepage or open the google search page when opening a new tab.

 

 

 

Any idea what is going on?

Running an ESET scan now.  ESET reported it didn't find anything but things are back to normal it seems so far.  When I open a new tab the google search is now there.  Will find out if restarting Chrome brings me to Yahoo.com instead of the yahoo search in a bit.
