What I Meant Was That With All Three Browsers Yahoo Search Does Not Work?From Other - Yahoo! Products Forum:
What I meant was that with all three browsers yahoo search does not work? I use Opera as my default browser. However, yahoo search won't work on any of the three. It has to be something my system is not doing correctly. I have searched everywhere and am coming up with no solution.
Answer: Its not just you, your system, or your browsers, it's a fault with Yahoo Search which has been happening since the last maintenance. If you don't get any results, try the refresh button, sometimes that reloads the page with the results. The fault is with Yahoo Search and it has been highlighted on the Yahoo forum.
How Do I Do I Compare And Contrast Go ogle Search Engine From Yahoo Search Engine?From Homework Help Forum:
How do I do I compare and contrast Go ogle search engine from Yahoo search engine? I have to do this for an essay, but I don't know what to compare or contrast. So what are some way that go ogle and yahoo search engines are alike? What are some ways that they are both diffrent?
Answer: The first thing to understand is that Go ogle and Yahoo are both big, wealthy sites who make money from advertising. They like putting their own results up the top, so that you click them and buy things. Fortunately Yahoo and Go ogle still show other people's sites along with the paid ads, but the two sites still have some big differences in what comes up. Each search engine has a different opinion on what matters the most. If we look closer here are the main differences from Go ogle to Yahoo: Google looks closely at a web page's text and also where it links to. It can tell a little better if the links make sense, and manages to filter out a lot of sites that have pages full of nonsense, or fake and broken links. (Pretend links, and pages full of nonsense words, are how some website owners try to get themselves on top of the search results.) If a website has Lots and lots of links to different sites, they need to be relevant - if they are links to completely different subjects, Go ogle won't rank it as highly as a page full of relevant links. So if you're looking for Ice Cream and a certain Ice Cream website has lots of links to Cadillacs and Knitting, you probably won't see it near the top! Yahoo will often include websites filled and overflowing with one particular word - again which the website's owner has repeated over and over to try to get themselves up to the top of the search results. Go ogle realises that it's probably not the best article if it's just full of the same few words, and Go ogle will sometimes remove that site from the results shown to you. Yahoo isn't quite so good at stopping "clone" sites appearing more than once. Ten identical websites all saying the same exact text isn't very useful to you, and Go ogle tends to keep these out a bit better. Overall, Go ogle tends to supply general information results, and Yahoo's results tend to be a little towards the shopping side of things - even if those results aren't paid advertising for Yahoo. If you're shopping, that might make Yahoo a great choice for you. http://www.helium.com/items/507101-the-difference-between-google-and-yahoo-search-results http://www.seobook.com/relevancy/

How Do I Stop Yahoo Search From Redirecting Me To Another Search Engine?From Yahoo! Search Forum:
How do I stop yahoo search from redirecting me to another search engine? After performing a search in Yahoo Search the links are displayed as normal, however, when I click on a link it doesn't go to the that page it takes me to a whole different search page. It appears that I am being redirected to another search page.
Answer: You have a virus called the "Search Redirect Virus" (many people call it the Go ogle Redirect Virus, but it works for all search engines). This virus is extremely common, and basically redirects your search links to advertising sites. Some variants of the infection are designed to open new tabs & other pop ups on your browser as well. Unfortunately, removing this virus is actually quite difficult, because of the way it's designed. Unlike most viruses, this infection just changes a few settings on your PC and does not have the files / applications that most do. This makes it extremely difficult to remove this virus from your PC by using the standard anti virus / anticipate applications. To remove this virus, I would recommend you use this tutorial, which worked for me and some of my friends: http://www.personalcomputerfixes.com/spyware/how-to-remove-the-google-redirect-virus/
How Do You Restore The Yahoo Search Engine Functions After It Was Affected By A Virus ?From Security Forum:
How do you restore the Yahoo Search Engine functions after it was affected by a virus ? I want to know how the Yahoo Search Engine can be restored to normal when a spy ware and/or other viruses affected the system. I have been downloading some anti-spyware programs, such as Spy bot, to reverse the effects and I want to know what applications I can used to turn the search engine back to normal. I have my Yahoo Search Engine results mixed with different web addresses. Thanks.
Answer: I had the same problem a few weeks ago and I fixed it without installing anything. It's a virus called "go.google". I tried installing stuff and still didn't work. The next steps worked for me so I guess this is the best way. Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Scroll down to “Non-plug and Play Drivers” and click the plus icon to open those drivers. Then search for “TDSSserv.sys” Right click on it, and select “Disable” Note: If you select Install, it will install itself again when you reboot the system, so DON’T select Install. Restart your PC. You can now update your Antirus/Malware/Rootkit soft wares and the go.google rubbish will stop. Hope this helps as much as it helped me. That virus is REALLY annoying. = )
How Can I Stop Being Redirected To Ad ware Every time I Use Yahoo Search?From Yahoo! Search Forum:
How can I stop being redirected to ad ware every time I use Yahoo search? Each time I use Yahoo search, I get redirected to advertisers. I have Norton spyware/adware protection but that does not seem to catch everything.
Answer: You have the "Search Redirect Virus". This virus will change genuine links that appear in Yahoo, or other major search engines, to links to websites about advertisements. You may also experience random pop ups. Using Norton, or any other major anti virus software, will not remove or catch this virus. This is because the virus only infects a select few system files. It does not run a background process either. You will need to use Combo Fix. This program is specially designed to deal with this problem. It restores the broken system files back to their original state, thereby removing the virus. You can find a comprehensive tutorial on how to use Combo Fix to remove this virus here: http://www.personalcomputerfixes.com/spyware/how-to-remove-the-google-redirect-virus/
