I got rid of the two browzers by clearing the yahoo browzers tab completely and left it empty.

What browser are you using?

So, when the browser starts up, it loads two tabs?

Change homepage for IE, Chrome, Firefox (respectively):

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...

https://support.google.com/chrome/a...

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/k...

If that doesn't work, you may be infected with a virus, download and run this:

What are the tabs that appear?

Could also be due to unwanted toolbars or their remnants, so also download and Save the file from the blue icon top right here:

Double click the saved file then run the Scan. I've usually found it fine to then run the Clean although there are options in the table.

Keep all logs in case further action is necessary.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Assuming you're asking about IE, go to Control Panel > Internet Options & see what's listed for your home page. Is there more than one? Delete the one you don't want & click Apply.
