This happened to me - something was wacky with the yahoo cookies - just do a file search for yahoo in your pc and eliminate the Yahoo cookies and you will be fine again.

When it happened to me Yahoo couldn't even find Yahoo.com.

I think the Y ppl might want to see the cookies - i bet if you sticky Yahoo_Mike he might be interested in a copy of the "broken cookies".

You must have some spyware on your system.

I posted here few days ago:

I can assure you that It was not a spyware.

I am curious about the bar inviting me to download the yahoo bar....

What are you noticing? The results seem fine for me. Yahoo is really improving.

Yahoo does some strange things based on specific cookies.

I had an associate get a cookie a couple of weeks ago that caused Yahoo to serve up straight Google results. Deleted the cookie and everything went back to normal.
