In the last two days, I am getting a pop up in my Windows IE, Search Setting Change Notification; what is this
It says: Yahoo has blocked an attemot by anoterh program to change your dafault settings. In Yahoo Search protection, I mark that no change is required. Still the pop up does not get stopped. What to do.

Sounds like you have a program that is trying to change your homepage for you. I would run your anti-spyyware / anti-adware programs and try to find what program is trying to change your homepage.
There are many anti-spyware & anti-adware programs available on the web at little or no cost.
I personally run:
Ad-aware 2007 (free)
Spybot - Search & Destroy (free)
A-Squared Free (free)
NOTE: You may wish to do these scans while in safe mode as they may actually be a bit more effective.
Hope this helps
