I have 3 systems in my home all use Yahoo as a home page. My system home page address looks like this www.yahoo.com/ . The same address is on my laptop as the home page.

But the system that my kids use looks like this www.yahoo.com/?rs=1 If that comes up as a link please do not click it. I don't know if it's safe. But I sure I'll find out from one of you people.

I have been to the IE options and changed it back to www.yahoo.com but it doesn't stay.

Could someone tell me what the ?rs=1 is that's after the address?

Seems genuine, the ID Bar would have gone off otherwise

Why doesn't the other system I have show up like this.
2 have www.yahoo.com/
1 has www.yahoo.com/rs=1

I realize that this maybe something that doesn't need to be worried about. But, It is one of those things where I just have to know, Why? ...lol...

You are correct in wanting an answer, I have uk.yahoo.com and if you check the international versions, the US site is about the only one which does not have the country letters like mexico is mx.yahoo.com and so on

The international version are without the www as well

http://uk.yahoo.com/

I was on another PC and that wouldn't retain the home page change either??
