  • This forum is for Windows XP SP3.

    You should really consider upgrading your Internet Explorer to version 8 immediately. The fact that you are using IE6 says to me that you haven't run Windows Update for a very long time. You should do this as soon as possible. Running an unpatched computer (especially a good couple of years worth of missing patches) is putting your computer at risk from all sorts of nastiness.

    Just go to your start menu, then all programs, and then choose Windows Update. It will do the rest for you.

    As for getting rid of yahoo search, you should just uninstall yahoo toolbar from add/remove programs.
