    Why Do I Get Yahoo for new tab in IE 10

    I am EXTREMELY careful using my home PC, I am a professional techie. I never install toolbars, use anti-malware and aupdate my OS, a good AV.

    I open IE and it opens my two default start pages. My IE settings say that when I open a new tab, a blank page. But when I open a 2nd new tab, it goes to Yahoo.com. I have nothing from Yahoo installed in my PC. Why is Yahoo hijacking my new tabs?

    Thank you!!!

    I would suggest booting into safe mode and run Internet Explorer and see if the same thing happens.

    Also Click on Manage Add-ons and see if Yahoo is enabled in search providers.

    I would check the add ons option first..
