Home Page Hijacked!

I've just installed Win XP and tweaked it using a number of tips I've found here and there. Very happy with the results, but there are a couple minor but annoying side effects--I set up a home page (my.yahoo.com) in IE Internet options and it appears to be saved, but whenever I click the home button, it takes me to click here. At the same time, an unwanted toolbar (no name, just search/spyware removal/MP3 and movies/Dating, etc, etc) has appeared and I can't seem to get rid of it either.

Can anyone suggest how I can jettison these nuisances?

Thanks
