Posting here since the problem was the result of a program installed on my windows 7 computer.
I downloaded some iffy software.. I checked no on all the boxes for tool bars, home pages, etc.. But after I opened the file it deleted all my chrome extensions and reset my home page anyways... I immediately did a system restore since the software was so "rude" I then got onto chrome and my home page was still set to yahoo or something.. So i changed it back and re-installed my extensions..
So my home page is NOT set to yahoo.. If i hit my home button it takes me to my personal website.. BUT if i open chrome from my desktop or task bar.. It automatically takes me to the yahoo page instead of my home page.
Any thoughts on how to fix this? I am running a Microsoft Security Essentials scan now but doesn't seem to be bothered by anything so far.

Hmm.. Nothing seemed to work.. Even when i click on the source chrome file it still opened up yahoo.. I just uninstalled and re-installed chrome. That seemed to solve the problem. Just have to re-install my extensions again. -_- smh
My virus scan did find a trojan that wasn't related to my issue though. Man i need to be more careful xD
