You should be clear that almost all suspicious search engine start with Isearch or websearch are labeled as browser hijacker or redirect virus. They replaces your home page and default search engine. They cause problems more than any benefits to your system so that you are often advised to eliminate them. Check over this. It helped.

Hello, all I can say is that your browser might have been infected with some potentially unwanted program. Kindly check for all extensions. Same was the case with mine some days ago. I reinstalled Google Chrome after going through the guide. see this working guide and try this. Good Luck

If unfamiliar pages are opening up each time you start up Chrome, check in Chrome Menu > Settings > On Startup > next to the radio button for Open a specific page or set of pages, click on Set pages > remove any unwanted URLs by hovering over the URL until you see an "X" appear to the right side of the URL.
If all searches that you perform in the omnibox are returning with results from a different search engine instead of your preferred search engine, check in Chrome Menu > Settings > Search > Manage search engines > check the list of Default search engines, Other search engines, and Search engines added by extensions, and remove suspicious entries that you are not familiar with. Depending on your extensions, you may not see the last section for Search engines added by extensions.
To remove an unfamiliar search engine, make sure you select your preferred search engine first, and then remove the unfamiliar option.
If an unfamiliar page opens up when you click on the Home button, check in Chrome Menu > Settings > Appearance > select the Show Home button checkbox > check the URL below it.
Also check that there are no extensions installed that may be causing these changes. Go to Chrome Menu > Settings > Extensions > if you see any unfamiliar extension that you do not remember installing, try disabling/removing the extension to see it was causing these changes. To disable, uncheck the "Enabled" checkbox next to the extension. To remove, hover over the extension until you see a trash can icon appear, and click on the icon.

A type of redirect virus like Searchis-cng.ru.
Just go to the extensions tab on Google Chrome, on Configuration; then activate the Developer Mode. Exit Chrome, and enter again. Go to the Extensions tab, and under the ADWARE program tab, there must be a text where it says: "Loaded from:......." Click there, remove everything it is in there, and remove it again from the Recycle Bin. Restart Chrome, and you won't see this adware again.
