The only reason the real yahoo hacked your homepage is if something either set it, or someone/something on your computer downloaded a toolbar that sets it that way.

you can change the homepage in internet options, and to ensure that you are not infected by something odd, I would run malwarebytes, and then post the log. :)

Thanks. I've run malwarebytes and nothing weird showed up. This problem is just on IE, and my first thought was yahoo did the hacking because there have been those kinds of issues since ATT bought yahoo.

I suppose its possible that the old website for att was directed to yahoo?
