Editors' Review

As the search engine wars heat up, Yahoo has upped the ante by adding powerful spyware protection to its popular Internet Explorer toolbar. Similar to other search engine toolbars, Yahoo Toolbar blends pop-up blocking and e-mail functionality with its search capabilities to enhance your browsing experience.

The latest version no longer requires you to sign into your Yahoo account to change the look of the toolbar. The interface is completely customizable and fits seamlessly into your IE browser. You can add or remove buttons for various Yahoo services, such as news and weather, but you have to refresh the toolbar to see the changes. The pop-up blocker stops most ads and doesn't hinder normal surfing.

The new Yahoo Anti-Spy spyware scanner is an excellent addition. Our test showed it to be just as thorough as stand-alone scanners. It quickly scans your system and provides detailed information about any spyware or adware found. You can then easily remove what you want. With this new protection, Yahoo has definitely become the toolbar to beat.
