Yes this software should be considered Malware as it piggybacks itself as bundled software which silently installs with other various software you've downloaded. Then it hijacks ALL browers to change startup pages and saved pages to yahoo and yahoo search engines. Very annoying to find. It was listed as Searchprotection in the add/remove programs for me some people report it listed as dealio or vendio and does not mention Yahoo as publisher.
