WHen att/my.yahoo.com comes up, the cursor is blinking in the YAHOO SEARCH field. I hate Yahoo Search and always use google. Need to move cusor every time I want to search.

Sometimes I start typing something in the Google search space at the upper left of my toolbar. Always I'll type the first few letters of my search and all of a sudden (as I complete my typing) the rest of the words I enter in search have been typed into the "Yahoo" search box. Sometimes, if I type fast (for me) and just look at the keyboard and hit enter I'll look up and find YAHOO results for the "remainder" of the words not left in the Google search.

Didn't ask for yahoo search and now cant get rid of - started about 60 days ago

Have looked in MANAGE ADD-ONS (toolbars and extensions + search providers) - nothing

Have searched on YAHOO and I didn't see anything out of the ordinary, but i'm a rookie.

HAve search (on google) in how to delete att/yahoo search engine, but strangly nothing there.

So as in life, I'm turing to a professional.

Thanks for your time, patience and attention.
