Question Can't get to regular yahoo site

I'm on a relatives new acer laptop, and everytime I try to go to "www.yahoo.com", ie7 goes to "m.www.yahoo.com" and the yahoo page looks different. Is this some special deal between acer and yahoo or something? Anyone know why this is? And how to fix?

To beta or not to beta, that is the question. The answer.yahoo.com link appears to have a bandaid to get around it.
