nestor, what exactly appeared on your computer.
So, you were searching for something on the Internet, and you were using Yahoo in your browser.
And then, what happened exactly?

On my Internet Explorer browser, there is a toolbar with a yahoo search. There appeared some searchs that I have not made. Can it be a Spyware?

Yes, absolutely.
Have you installed Ad Aware SE (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/) and Spybot Search & Destroy (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html) ?

Hi, I'm new here. I have that kind of search in my toolbar. The yahoo one. You have to delete those searches. Click the pencil near the search and use the program Search and Destroy. It works. It will not appear again.

Nestor, http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif That happened to me once and it was a spyware. Have you checked the links that I gave you?
To know if it works, you can erase the searches that appaered on the toolbar and if they appear again, it means that there is something wrong. If it doesn't appear it means that it was spyware. At the toolbar there is a pencil, click on there and click on the option that says "clear recent searches". Now the searches are gone and wait if they appear again. If you don't erase them, they will be there forever. The programs on the link will prevent those things, but will not erase those searches. Good Luck.

You're welcome. Oh, and i forgot to mention: To prevent spyware and such to sneak into your pc, also install Spywareblaster (http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html) . Update its database often. It blocks the baddies.
I'm not saying 'Good Luck' again, but 'Take Care!' and keep em out. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif
