I had my yahoo home page set to uk.yahoo.co.uk. I have just defragged my C:\ drive and now the home page is reading http://m.uk.yahoo.co.uk and is totally different. Can anyone tell me if this is malware/virus affecting this. Seems odd it should do it straight after a defrag and looks totally odd too.

Thanks for reading and in advance for any help offered.

Not likely. It's still in the yahoo domain so it's not any kind of malware. Just set it back to what you want.

Thanks for the reply. I tried several times to change the page, but it kept going back to the second address I gave above. However, I installed a programme that needed the pc to be rebooted to complete and after doing that the web page was back to it's normal address. Don't know what happened, but seems it was resolved by rebooting. Thanks again for the help. Always appreciated. hedley
