All of a sudden, I'm unable to access IE. I keep getting a message that "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem with an add-on and needs to close" with the additional message that "the following add-on was running when this problem occurred:"
Add-on Name: yt.dll

How do I resolve this problem?

Go into Internet Options and disable add-ons and try again.

Papertrip,
Can you possibly describe the steps I need to go through to uninstall Yahoo toolbar?
