I for got my password for my yahhoo account ...,,

When you attempt to sign in and are unsuccessful, Yahoo! should offer you the opportunity to reset your password. You will be asked to provide certain information, and then, they should send you a temporary password you can use to sign in and reset your password.

If possible run virus check on your computer first.
Open Yahoo site and click on I can't access my account"
Choose "i have a problem with my password"
click NEXT
Input your Yahoo ID

So, you may need to have a different email account set up to be able to receive Yahoo password reset link.

My Email is sending out random messages

You may have opened an email and thought it was from a friend.

It was spam and then contacted all of your friends and sent them things too.

Try this and see if it stops for you;

To change your password:

1. From the Yahoo! Home page, click on your user name in the upper right.(You will need to be signed in already)
2. From the drop down select Account Info
3. You will be asked to sign in again to enter your Account Info page.
4. Click Change your password
5. You will be taken to a page that will look like the one below.

6. Enter your current password.
7. Enter and confirm your new password.
8. Click Save. You will see a confirmation page when you have successfully changed your password.
9. Click Continue.


1. Sign into your Yahoo! account.
2. Click on your name at the top of the page and select "Account Info" from the pull-down list. You will be required to verify your current password.
3. Under "Sign-In and Security," click "Update password - reset info."
4. You can choose one of the security questions we have made available or your can choose your own.
5. Be sure to click "Save" after you have provided your new information.


1. From the Yahoo! Home Page, click on your Yahoo! ID (You will need to be signed in to proceed).
2. From the pull down menu select Account Info
3. You will be re-directed to a sign in page.
4. Sign in using your Yahoo! ID and password.
5. In your Account Info page you will see a block called Contact Information
6. Click Change next to your Yahoo! Email address.
7. From the Manage your email addresses page you can change, delete, or add a new alternate email address.
8. Click Save

Change your security questions also!

Also; make sure you have a really good Anti virus protection.

I use AVG, it doesn't cost anything if you do their free version and Malwarebytes.

If it is a virus that has you, one of these 2 usually detect it!

Download the one of your choice (i have both),

Install it and run it.

It will detect if you have rampant viruses.

Good luck!

Remove virus from account

1. Open Yahoo Mail. Use your Yahoo! user ID and password to sign in to Yahoo Mail. Open the email message suspected of containing a virus.
2. Find attachments. The attached files are in the header section above the body of the email. The names of the attachments will appear as blue, active hyperlinks, taking on the actual saved file name given by the sender.
3.Initiate automatic virus scanning and cleaning. Look for another link labeled "Scan and Download Attachment" and click it. If this link does not show, you may have to click directly on the attachment's file name. Look for the alert "Scanning attachment for viruses." The alert may appear for less than a second, dependent upon the size of the file; if you miss the brief message it is not important.
4. Wait and read results. After the virus scan completes, if no virus is detected, you will be given the go-ahead to download the attachment. If a virus is detected, Yahoo Mail will try to automatically clean the attachment, and then present the option to download.
Hopefully, it may help to protect your Email account.
