    Um, how did it get on there? Do you have a Yahoo app? I don't believe (though I could be mistaken) that Yahoo is yet shipping on any Android Devices. Did you install it? If so, you can then remove it.

    I'm sure there's something you can uninstall or some setting to change.

    But if all else fails, you can add the google search widget to your home screen and use that.

    It sounds like to me that he has switched his home page on his browser to the Yahoo Mobile page. Open the browser, type www.google.com into the address bar, after the page loads, tap settings and set that to your home page under General Settings. The menus are different for different devices, so you may have to look around a bit to find the set homepage option.
