First off what do you mean Yahoo.Com windows pops up ? Like a new browser window opens up and it is going to Yahoo? is Yahoo! your homepage? What have you DL before this happened?

I'm not exactly sure what your saying but the problem sounds like some sort of adware, but generally adware doesn't lead you to yahoo.com. If you could, explain this a little more thoroughly and I will try to help.
