  1. The manual removal instructions not correct or are out of date. My Chrome is somehow set to Yardood.com home page. I change it and it just goes back to Yardood. There is no Yardood program on my PC to uninstall and there is no Yardood extension in Chrome’s settings to remove. Revo Uninstaller does not find it either. Yardood does not appear in programs listed in Control Panel. There is not even one Yardood entry in my computer’s registry!
