Title: Search Baron
Post by: Brian642 on March 11, 2020, 06:55:43 PM
I've been using Chrome as my default browser. A few months ago my default search engine changed to Bing without my knowledge or consent. I've tried removing it in settings with no success. I've done some searching and have realized I probably have malware through something called Search Baron. I'd like to remove it. Any idea how to use Avast to remove it?

Kill the process from the Activity Monitor. Then remove it from Applications. After that delete it from Login Items. And finally, reset settings in chrome in the advance tab.
