    Say I put in an incorrect web address in the URL line and press enter to visit it, if it can't find the site, it automatically does a Yahoo.com search for the link.

    Any way to get RID of it? I don't like it. I like the default Microsoft one with the suggestions.

    EDIT: Or is it because of this: http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/1996/aug96/YAHOOma.asp

    open IE/tools/options/programs and press reset web settings
    then
    go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
