How to remove a tab from browser bar.

by dawillie / June 21, 2011 11:40 AM PDT

Running IE8.0 with XP-SP-Pro. All AV and antispyware up to date.
During a Yahoo update I mistakenly added Yahoo as a tab to my browser in additoin to my home page.
Now I am encountering problems opening my browser and the message I get is that the Yahoo tab is causing it.
I have tried to delete it using View, but it comes back when I close and re-open the browser.
Can you help please.

that Yahoo is now an additional Home Page?

If so, go to Tools > Internet Options then the General tab, and remove the Yahoo entry from the Home Page listing.
