I can open my yahoo email page but am unable to open any emails. Any suggestions?


Try clearing the cache and cookies of your browser. If your using Internet Explorer, click on the tools option on the upper portion of your screen and then click on internet options. When the internet options page opens up, click on the button that says "delete" then another page will open up. You will have an option there to delete "Temporary Internet Files" and "Cookies". By the way, whenever you got to your email page, do you have a pop up message saying "Do you want to view only the webpage content that was delivered securely?" If you see this pop up you need to click on "No" and not "Yes".

How do i enable cookies on my computer? and i have java instaled but some games and videos wont play on the computer?


I assume you want to enable Cookies in Internet Explorer (Different for Firefox, googlechrome, etc..).
Open the Internet Explorer, click "Tools", then "Internet Options" and on the Internet Options dialog box, click "Privacy" tab and then click "Advanced" (circled):

Now in the Advanced box, select the "Overwrite automatic cookie handling"

Again, select "Always allow session cookies" [note: by default, both the options should be set as "Accept"]

And then "Ok"
Again "Ok". 2ad5978.jpg

Now your internet explorer's cookies has been enabled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

When try to sign in it says cookies won.t allow it i neeed access to my email what do i do cookies seem to be preventing me from logging on to get to my email


I assume you are using Internet Explorer as your browser. Open the Control Panel > Internet Options > General > and below the general tab, locate "browsing history", select "delete browsing history on exit", click "Delete" > "Apply" > "Ok" (you have to do this while the internet explorer is closed, otherwise all the cookies and temporary files will be unable to delete).

Now open the internet explorer and access the site again. Hope it's gone now and you can access your mails.

If in case the problem persists, you need to use a system cleaner, (click here to download a cleaner-freeware) or run the disk clean-up wizard, open "My Computer" right-click C: > "Properties" > "Disk Cleanup" > on the disk cleanup wizard dialog box options, select the applicable location/programs including Temporary internet files and Temporary files, click "Ok".

[If you are using another browser like Mozilla firefox, googlechrome, etc..etc.. it's best and easiest to run the program mentioned above, but always run the program while the browser is closed]

That'll definitely fix your problem.

Good luck.

On facebook games ,i used to play any game i wanted but now only certain games load ,how do i fix this problem with such as farmville,ponzi inc


First, try to access your account in a different internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera) or different computer, if you can access the other games, then the problem could be the internet browser that you are using.

You need to try optimizing your internet browser. Here's how:

* For Internet Explorer version 6
1. Open IE6 > Tools > Internet Options.
2. Click the Delete Cookies button and Delete History.
3. Click on OK > Close and re-open your IE6.
4. Try accessing your e-mail account.

* For Internet Explorer version 7
1. Open IE7 > Tools > Internet Options.
2. Click the "Delete" button under the Browsing History option.
3. Delete the Cookies, Internet Files
4. Click on OK > Close and re-open IE7
5. Try accessing your e-mail account.

* For Mozilla FireFox
1. Open Firefox > Tools
2. Select "Clear Recent History"
3. Select Cookies, Cache, Browsing and Download History.
4. Close and re-open Firefox
5. Access your e-mail

Good luck!
