Problem with Yahoo hijacking Google Search on MAC and Safari ?

I have BT Virus Protect ver (1015) installed to protect my MacBook. It has recently picked up a problem with Google search and now always returns a Yahoo result. I understand this is malware and is redirecting my searches.

Running a scan on McAfee does not pick it up. It does however pick it up on Web Adviser and blocks it as a security risk listing the following site as the problem.omegle xender

I have tried a number of things to remove it to no avail. Is there anything I can do.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi @WyattKai 

We regret for the inconvenience caused. This might have happened due to browser updates. Kindly try resetting the browsers. If you continue to face the issue, please help with WebAdvisor and macOS version?
