IE8 optimized for Yahoo

I found a version of IE8 "optimized for yahoo" on one of our company PC's. I want to get rid of this, and go back to the normal IE. However, i dont see this in Add/remove programs, or in the IE management options. Where would i remove this?

 The PC in question is a standard Dell Opti 755 running XPsp3,  its a domain machine, and i dont see this on any other profile (no im not using roaming). I remade the profile in question and its still there.

Good Day,

I got rid of pesky yahoo by:

Removing IE8 in add remove programs, and by doing so it downgraded me to IE6.  Then I went back and reinstalled IE8 from the Microsoft website.

Good Luck,
