Is this the Yahoo search toolbar? If so, disable or remove the toolbar.
I once installed yahoo messenger, and it basically trashed my searches. It is especially useless with Google maps. I can be on a Google map, and when I click on it, yahoo will often give me a "page not found" - even though I am already on that page!.
How useless is yahoo search?
Some sites say to remove it from the browser add-ins or some such, but after doing so, it still reappears to haunt my every search.
Any clues on how to kill this monstrosity for good, (shy of reformatting my hard drive)?
