My home page constantly changes to the yahoo search webpage. I change it both in the options section on firefox and on my internet options on the computer; however, every time I open firefox it has changed back to this silly yahoo site. I have even tried uninstalling it and redownloading it from the mozilla.org website with no add-ons but it still keeps changing. Please advise.

You can check for recently installed suspicious or unknown extensions.

If you do not keep changes after a restart or otherwise have problems with preferences, see:

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer. Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
