Default What is C:\...\ytb_setup.exe?

My Sygate Personal Firewall logged it when I opened the internet portal. I googled it and got next to nothing. Thanks. -Q

I'm not positive but it may be the setup program for Yahoo ToolBar. What is the C:\.... really translated from? And do you have Yahoo Toolbar installed?

YTB! I should have at least guessed that. That makes sense. I have been restricting access to all non essential programs, including Yahoo. Many thanks!
