Safari no longer will finish loading a page.

Suddenly I can no longer use Safari. WHen I open it, I get a popup window, and everything else across the top is greyed out so I cannot go to any page, change window size, put a different adress or delete address in address bar, etc. The error message I get is well over 50 lines long, and I canot see the whole thing because the window is bigger than the screen. Here is the beginning of the message:
"Wifi Media Kit stopped to work, please reset it!:<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "">
<html><head><title>Yahoo! - 404 Not Found</title><style>
/* nn4 hide */
body {font:small/1.2em arial,helvetica,clean,sans-serif;font:x-small;text-align:center;}table {font-size:inherit;font:x-small;}"

And it continues for many many lines.

How do I get Safari back to being usable?
Thank you
