    If you go to YAHOO!'s main web page, at the top they have a link that says, "Make YAHOO! your homepage" click on that. . . problem should be solved! :o)

    If you're using IE, click on "Tools" < "Internet Options"

    Under the "General" tab, type in the address in the first form entry you see. The one under the sentence that says: "You can change which page to use as your home page" When you're done, click Apply (in the bottom of the page) and close the pop-up. Then click on the Home button to check it out.

    Hope this helps!

    Open your Internet Explorer. Go to Tools, select Internet Options. On the first space, titled Homepage, type in the web address you wish to set as homepage.

    If that fails, go to Start menu. Select Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. See if you can find Google Search in it. If it is, remove it and it should be gone.

    This usually indicates that some sort of security software is protecting against home page changes. Spybot resident and others have this option.
