Unwanted Search Redirections

My default search provider is Google, but I noticed since yesterday that every search in IE9 gets redirected to a Yahoo web address.  I guess that some program has installed itself to automatically make these redirections, but I can't find any suspects in Control Panel / Programs and Features list of recent installations, and no Yahoo product shows up in my list of IE9 / Tools / Add-ons.  A full system scan with McAfee Security Centre ver. 11.6 did not find anything.  My questions are: Has anybody else noticed this behaviour?  Is it the kind of "malware" that a security system should find?  Does McAfee have a solution or product to deal with it?
