Problem in Internet Explorer

My IE will always open a window to another website when I input my login ID in Yahoo email. I have tried to delete cache in IE and reset my IE to default. It doesn't help. Any idea how to fix it ?

Tks

"How to take away those malware on IE ?"
Scan with MS Security Essentials and MalwareBytes.  You download and install from here

I do not know who thinks running Win XP is safe from a security point of view.  If you have any control install a more recent version of Windows.

Would be worth running anti-virus and anti-malware scans on the computer as well. Something may be hijacking your web browser. (I'd also change your Yahoo login password as well from a different machine where possible in case this has been logged).

What version of IE are you using? Also, do you have an "popup blockers" installed or any custom toolbars?

What is the other website?  Is it a legitimate site?  If so look at your Yahoo profile and see what site you have set up there for it to open when you enter your ID.
If not a legitimate site, then as Andy Morton has said, you may be infected with malware.
