    My homepage is set to www.google.com in internet options. starting today,
    when I click on explorer, it takes me to google but then automatically opens
    to yahoo mail right after and i have to click back to go back to google. how
    can I stop this? I tried resetting my home page to google but it still does
    it, I even tried a system restore but the problem is still there. any ideas?
    I have win xp with sp2 and all updates.

    In add/remove programs there was yahoo toolbar and yahoo explorer bar. I
    removed the yahoo explorer bar and all is well. Thanks for the suggestion.
