How to remove google custom search?
There are a number of steps I suggest you take.
First, check your proxy settings.
To check your proxy settings in Chrome/Windows:
Go to > Settings > Show advanced settings > Network
Click “Change proxy settings”
In the Internet Properties panel that opens, click “LAN Settings”
Unless you have specifically chosen a different setting, the only checked box should be:
Automatically detect settings
If you have difficulty changing the settings back to normal, malware may have made a registry entry that forces the incorrect setting.
"PUPs" - Potentially Unwanted Programs
Try scanning your computer for malware.
You may need to use more than one anti-malware product to detect all malware. Here are some of the more popular/effective products:
Spybot Search & Destroy
Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
If you feel uncomfortable or unqualified to fully investigate this issue, I suggest you enlist the services of a competent and trusted computer technician.
