I apparently have an infection, possibly through Yahoo. Don't know whether malware or something else.

I have a window that appears periodically with a Yahoo logo. The window has my correct email address and asks for my password even though I may already be on Yahoo. It appeared just after a tech discussion with a Yahoo Security agent during which I allowed him access to the computer by remote (Team Viewer). I informed Yahoo of the problem, was told to change my password, which I did. The window request continues. I have swept for Spyware with and cleaned all of the files recommended. The window, however, continues to appear and did so during the scan.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
