    I keep getting a lot of entries for yahoo companion in my temporary internet files. Here is the path:
    C:\Users\Rusty\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\tem porary internet files\virtualized\c\program data\yahoo! companion\icons...

    I must have installed this toolbar by accident with Yahoo instant messenger. It is not listed in add/remove or anywhere I else I have searched. It isn't listed as a choice in the toolbars view in IE8 or Opera browser either.

    Anyone know where this thing may be hiding so I can find and delete it?

    Take a look at manage add ons under tools. Yahoo generally does have an add on. Perhaps it's there.

    That was one of the first things I checked. No sign of it there.

    Maybe it's coming from Yahoo instant messenger. I have a bare bones installation of that, but I'm pretty sure I unchecked all junkware when I installed it.

    I would think to prove one way or the other that Yahoo IM is causing this, uninstall Yahoo IM and see if the problem continues. You can always reinstall this app.
