cybersearch.xyz

Operating System
macOS Catalina ver10.5.7
Current issues and symptoms
something called cybersearch.xyz is on my mac redirecting my chrome's new tab page to a suspiciously looking search engine. I've removed all malwares found by anti-malware softwares, I've removed the suspicious profile from setting, and I've restarted both chrome and my mac, but it's still there.
I've also tried using Terminal to change the seeting (instructions from internet), but when it comes to delete some default setting like search engine provider, it sends back "Domain (com.google.Chrome) not found". (what's more wierd is that sometimes it could work for like one or two times, then it keeps saying "domain not found". I think is might be because of the malware on my mac)
on my chrome, it is saying that an extension is controlling the setting, setting my default search engine to cyber search, and I can't remove it.
another thread on google support【https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/80605725?hl=en】is also on this problem, and no one have come up with a way to solve it.
NEED HELP!

Adware / Browser Hijacker.

Did you remove 'LiveInfoUpdates'?

Did you use Malwarebytes for Mac?
I use clean my mac X, (btw where is LiveInfoUpdates? I can't remember if I've found or deleted such things)
