What is Yahoo! Search Protection?

What is it?

Once Yahoo! Search Protection is enabled, and in order to protect your selection of Yahoo! as your default browser search engine setting, Yahoo! Search Protection may override previous search protection settings in other applications. When enabled, Yahoo! Search Protection logs changes you make to your default search settings as well as third party attempts to change your default search engine settings. Your default search must be Yahoo! in order for Yahoo! Search Protection to protect against changes to your default search engine. Enabling or turning on Yahoo! Search Protection will set Yahoo! as your default search engine. Yahoo! Search Protection comes with an update feature that will notify you when an update becomes available.

Description from the publisher
Yahoo! Search Protection will alert you if an attempt is made to change your default browser search engine from Yahoo! Yahoo! Search Protection is provided as an additional service to Yahoo! users through the installation process of the Yahoo! Toolbar download. Yahoo! Search Protection only works with Microsoft Internet Explorer. When a third party attempts to change Yahoo! as your default search engine, Yahoo! Search Protection will ask you to confirm the change and will prevent the change until you confirm it. Once you have chosen to block the change, Yahoo! Search Protection will automatically block the third party’s later attempts to change Yahoo! as your default search engine and will stop prompting you for this confirmation.
