    Sounds like some spyware (not Yahoo of course). Try Microsoft Anti Spyware.

      i can recommend the freeware version of adaware.

      occasionally i update the definitions file and that keeps my machines clean.

        Not suffered from a lot of spyware but from what ive read those who do should run a combination of spyware detectors to ensure better detection rates.

          In my opinion, the best solution is to install indeed an anti-spyware and also a program like spywareblaster (very useful!) to avoid future installation of spyware. You can find the program specs here:

              Try anti spyware packages first to see if they get rid of them but search bars are a classic sign of spyware infection.

                i recommend installing a centralized application to avoid the spywares.
                something like ca pestpatrol http://www3.ca.com/Solutions/Product.asp?ID=5222
                Good Luck
