MY wife has Yahoo as her default engine and I cannot get rid of it. She wants it to be Google. I went to control panel and uninstall allsigns of Yahoo and it still pops up when she clicks on IE to do a search. I went to Tools under options/default and removed Yahoo from the list and selected Google and rebooted. I then came back clicked on IE and Yahoo shows up. Slightly frustrating! I would really appreciate any suggestions that may help and remove this leach. She has Vista OS. Thank you so much.

In Internet Options from the Control Panel, on the General Tab, click on the Settings button under the Search (Change Search Defaults) area in the middle of the window.

 

Here you can disable and/or remove Search providers, toolbars, accelerators, etc.

 

See if this brings some relief.
