Yahoo Tool Bar Ad

Hello,
I have this toolbar but every time I do a search, an ad asking me to install Yahoo toolbar hijacks my search and sometimes it is persistent and when I remove the ad, it comes back again.
Anyone know how to stop this?

I believe I downloaded it from Yahoo but There are websites out there that mimic the yahoo website.
This had happen when I downloaded Adobe flash player from what appeared to be the official adobe website. Somehow I was able to determine that and remove it and then went to the official website.
I'll remove the toolbar and re-install it from Yahoo to see what happens.

I re-installed yahoo tool bar and the problem has not appeared after performing two separate searches. I'll wait till tomorrow to see if it is still ok before I mark it as solved.

You might run this to make sure you didn't pick up anything else you didn't intend on,
