They have changed the design of the website. I like the look of it now. I can't wait until my DSL contract it over. I am going back to RoadRunner!

I use my.yahoo.com; very handy to get news, sports scores, weather, Yahoo mail, movie show times, television listings, comics, and that DVDTalk RSS thingy, all on the same page at once.

CWS Spyware changes the home page in IE primarily to about:Blank. It is harder to tell if you have been hijacked this way. Some of the variants are a real pain to remove.

I don't think there is a problem in a non -IE based brower though.
