I can't set back my search engine to Google anymore

Hi all,

Since I have been using McAfee my default search engine has been changed to Yahoo and everytime I try to go to my Google Chrome settings to set Google back as default one the browser just stops working.

Furthermore, every time I try to switch off my McAfee webadvisor from the relevant app the only thing I achieve is being redirected to a dummy page ( with no links whatsover.

Do you know what to do to have back Google as my search engine in my address bar on Google Chrome?


Thank you

Open browser, Click WebAdvisor and select Options. Simply set your settings to   " Tell me if a search result is safe in any search engine"
