McAfee Changing my Chrome Search Engine

Jump to solution

Dear All

On a regular basis, I get warning when I start my Chrome (PC Win 10 64) browser that my safe search is off. When I restart my browser I find that McAfee has changed my search engine from Google to Yahoo. I don't want to use Yahoo! I then need to spend time changing the settings in Chrome how can I disable this functionality, please?

Simply set your settings to   " Tell me if a search result is safe in any search engine"
