    Help! No matter how many times I delete Yahoo from my search toolbar and
    make something else the default search engine, it reverts back to Yahoo. I
    am so frustrated. What can I do to fix this problem?

    Thank you!

    By the way, I do not have Yahoo's toolbar or use Yahoo as an ISP. It's
    obviously a problem with IE7.

    Yahoo! isn't an ISP.

    From the "Tools" button on the lowest menu bar, extreme right end of the
    bar...

    Select "Manage Add-ons", see if Yahoo! is there. If not, select the
    "Settings" button on the middle toolbar, extreme right end of the bar...

    Select "Options", then "Features"...

    The topmost button is labeled, "Search Box Settings...". You should be able
    to make changes there.
    Nobody had Yahoo! as an ISP: Yahoo! _isn't_ an ISP.
    It's not a "problem", it is an option; and not so obvious at that.

    Hi,
    When you try to customize Search providers, is there only one IE window and
    one tab open? You're clicking on OK after changing the default, right?

    Any Yahoo programs listed in Control Panel> Add or remove programs?

    Go to Start> Run (type in) msconfig. Hit Enter. Go to the Startup tab.
    Anything from Yahoo?

    You didn't download IE7 customized for/by Yahoo did you?
