Too bad, but this didn't work at all. In the list of programs/apps that I can uninstall, there is nothing with the name Yahoo or etc. Nothing at all! I got rid of it for a few weeks by running AdwCleaner but then it came back. Nice try, but this solution is just another one that does not work.

The Yahoo search is not listed in the installed apps (: So these suggestions don't help.
