Hi Rosemarie, don't worry about yahoo. The toolbar you need to change is in 
internet explorer. When you're in Internet Explorer just press the alt key to 
take you to the menus, and cursor right to the view menu. the toolbar submenu 
is the top item in the view menu. cursor down till you find the explorer bar 
submenu and right cursor to open it. The top item is search. If that says 
checked press the enter key to uncheck it. When you've done that it'll be fine.
  Let me know how you get on,

  Hi, John.  I have a problem with yahoo which is my home page.  How do I find 
the tool bar to uncheck the search so I can have a faster connection to the 
internet?  I have DSL so i should be able to connect to the internet pretty

    Hi everybody, re the post earlier today regarding the seeming hijack of the 
internet explorer home page it isn't a hijacker, it's just a changed toolbar 
setting. it's easily solved. I had the same thing happen to me. All you have to 
do is to go to the toolbars submenu and uncheck search on the explorer bar 
menu. When you've done that everything should be fine.
