    Having the same issue. Only with Yahoo.com. Last update was at 4:00pm today. It wouldnt suprise me if it was a true trojan with them. I've been wanting a new start page anyways lol. Any suggestions?

    Avast is the king of FPs... Probably it's the reason...

    Welcome to Wilders.

    Why settle for only one start page when IE7/FF/etc. allow multiple tabs?

    Here's one suggestion.

    I've been using Avast for a few years and I could probably count on one hand the number of false positives I have had from it, so I would have to disagree with your statement.

    iGoogle is a great Home page. News, Weather, MapQuest, PacMan (the arcade game), Comics (Garfield, etc ..you name it), plus many other things. I switched to iGoogle, from My.Yahoo about 2 months ago and it has been nice. I recommend it to all.

    Later...

    It's probably an underhanded attempt to get you to switch to Google. ;)
