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?

paulsauve is right.
There's a much cleanier solution tho:
Start Control Panel> Internet Options > Advanced Tab:
Click the Reset Button.

Will clean everything up
