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.

The system I am having the problem with is at home and I am currently in my office. I will try the proposed solutions this evening and get back to you.
Papertrip,
Can you possibly describe the steps I need to go through to uninstall Yahoo toolbar?

Manage projects of all sizes how you want. Great for personal to-do lists, project milestones, team priorities and launch plans.
- Combine task lists, docs, spreadsheets, and chat in one
- View and edit from mobile/offline
- Cut down on emails

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
