Question about Computers & Internet
Yahoo is not really a browser, it is a search engine. If you want to change your homepage to yahoo you can do this:
Click start then run then type inetcpl.cpl. This should pull up Internet Options window. Under General Tab, you should be able to change the homepage from there. Make sure you click on apply after changing the address.
Hope this helps.

Yahoo doesn't offer a browser of their own. You can make it the default homepage of any browser.
Internet Explorer, Firefox (Mozilla), Chrome (by Google) and Opera are browsers most commonly used with Windows. Safari is the Mac OSX/iOS browser.
In Internet Explorer to make a page the default homepage, open the Tools menu. (Click on the Gear icon or Tools (press Alt to show the menu)) Then select Internet Options. In the General tab, you can either set the current page as the default homepage or enter a specific URL to be the homepage. Click Apply to save your changes and click OK. When you restart IE, the listed page will be the homepage.
In Firefox, click Tools and then Options. Under the General Tab, you will be able to enter your homepage choice.
Similar options exist for other browsers but I don't know their toolbars.
If you can't reset the homepage, either malware has been installed or a malware blocker is actively preventing you from changing the homepage. (A malware blocker should pop up with an "I've stopped this action" message. Then you should be able to disable it to change your homepage and then re-enable it.)
I hope this helps.
(Yahoo does have their own IM program but I don't know the program. For Windows, you can select the default program in the Control Panel. For Win7 Start > Control Panel > Programs > Set Default Programs and Set Program Access and Computer Defaults.)
