Search Engine Issue

Hi, I am wondering if anyone can help me. I have used chromebooks for quite some time now and never had any issues. However, at the moment when I open a tab, it takes me to an unfamiliar search engine, I am unable to post the link as it won't let me in here, it comes up with google colours, but says SEARCH on the opening screen. then when I type google.. takes me to Yahoo... :-/

I have gone into settings for my browser and the only search engine listed is google, so I am unsure now what to do as I am not sure if that search engine is some kind of a virus? any advice gratefully received x

I had the same problem yesterday. Something is hijacking the new tab.

Don't disable but remove the last 3 extensions you installed. Then reboot.

If that didn't work remove any apps you installed since the last time you know that new tab and seqrch worked right.
