  1. To whom it may concern? Avast hast included browser jacking as part of their pack for the browser cleanup. If used it will browser jack browsers like chrome with a bing or yahoo search. Recommended cure. Uninstall Avast and manaully cleanup your browsers. I consider it malware even tho its something that avast is doing.

    Its a shame too, I found its boot scan useful. It doesnt show up as malware because Avast is grossly abusing its status to install it. All done inside the antivirus and its permissions.
