Question about Computers & Internet
I have the dreaded '' Yoog '' Search engine problem. It just seemed to show up one day. If it is removed, it just reappears as the default search engine in Firefox. ( It's also the default search in Internet Explorer.) If you delete it in the Firefox search pluggins folder, and then open Internet Explorer, you can actually watch it reappear before your very eyes in the Firefox search pluggins folder. I finally blocked www3.yoog.coms IP address in my firewall, which seems to have spead up my page loads.
Not sure if this thing is as harmless as others have stated, but I sure wish there was a way it could easily be uninstalled. If anyone runs into an uninstaller please let me know! Thank you very much in advance.
I completley removed firefox as I got rid of the yoog problem on IE8 and it kept reappearing on firefox and then back onto my IE8.
To remove 'yoog', reset your default search at the top right to google. on START at the bottom left, type in COMMAND PROMPT. on the black screen on command prompt, type in REGEDIT. This will take you to the regestry editor, go to EDIT then type in YOOG on find........... 3 codes will appear. Right click DELETE each one. Restart your computer.......... Problem solved.

Okay, first of all do not reformat your hard drive to get rid of yoog. I recognize for those of you constantly backing up your drive it's no big deal, but for others its a big loss. Yoog is annoying and sticks around......don't expect to simply delete it from your search engines and be rid of it.
Run Malware bytes, before restarting go ahead and go to manage search engines in mozilla and set google as default and get rid of yoog just in case. Also, go into regedit by typing it in at the command prompt. On find type in yoog, delete all and click on find next. Go ahead and delete all the **** that is under domain b/c it's all junk.
I have to say that I may of got rid of yoog due to running malware bytes. Looking at the log, malware did find the yoog entry in my registry and correct it. Nothing eles worked and maybe all that purging in regedit didn't really help. I honestly can't believe that there are fools who complain about an effective program like Malware bytes and are shocked that they charge money for an upgrade. I ran a full system scan w/o even being asked if I wanted to upgrade. The truth is most people are too stupid and lazy to figure things out for themselves and will continue to be plagued with annoying things like Yoog despite expensive virus protection programs.It's best to learn how somebody programs a nuisance like this into your registry and then you will know how to be rid of it.

Malwarebytes removes it. It seems to be the only one that does at this time.
