If i was you i would do a system file checker.
Go to Start /Run then type in sfc /scannow leave the gap between c /
It might want your xp disc.Just let it run .

For the `search` problem, not sure if it will help with the yahoo problem.

Go to start menu/Run,type in the following commands:

regsvr32 urlmon.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 wshom.ocx

(press return after each command)
