Default google search hijacked!

Google search has been hijacked( redirected elsewhere). All malware scans have not fixed the issue( malwarebytes, super antispyware, avg, ms defender, several more.)

Does anyone know of a fix?

what are you using for browser and does it happen for all the searches?, and redirected where? A phishing link or another search engine?

It could be a toolbar thing, they don't flag as malware but sure act like it sometimes.

And how do you access google search? by going to and searching? or using search terms in url bar? Some DNS will use their own search engine for unknown addresses
