Not comfortable with you connecting to my PC

I'm sorry. With remote support session, you can see everything I do on the screen, and we have an A+ service rating at the Better Business Bureau website:

Remote support is quicker and easier for you. But since you do not want it, I can certainly provide written instructions you can use for fixing this issue. In Chrome, click on the 3-bar icon at the upper right corner, then click on Settings, then click on Show advanced settings if shown at the bottom (scroll down as needed), then scroll down at the bottom, then click on Reset, and confirm Reset, then check.
Please let me know. Thank you.

I have already done that. No change. When I do a search I can see the google search result for half a sec then I am switched to yahoo search again. If it makes your life easier you can connect to my PC provided I can follow what you do
