    It looks like part of your explanation got cut off? Does it lock up on any other internet page beside yahoo?

I suggest running a full system Virus scan with AVG or AVIRA both you can get for free. Remember to uninstall your current virus software before you install new or you can crash your system. Once you have completed the virus scan. Restart. If any virus's were found run it again untill there are none reported. Pain I know.... once you have no reported virus's then run combofix...I guarantee this will fix your issue.
Download ComboFix from [url=http://www.techsupportforum.com/sectools/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
Cnet.com will have AVG or Avira...

Someon pops up on my chat and it's not really that person..is it a problem with my computer or theirs? What can I do about it? I have also come up on a friend's chat and it wasn't me.


It's normal to receive instant messages from uknown contacts(obviously bots). It's a way of phishing or infecting your computer. When you respond to their IMs, they would reply with automated answers and then give you links that will direct you to suspicious websites.

Regarding the IMs that your friends receive from your account but you know you did not send that message, It is possible that your computer is infected with a virus or someone has your log-in credentials for Yahoo Messenger. Please run a scan using Malwarebytes or Trojan Remover to check for infections. And, change the password of your Yahoo account.

Google took over and home page should be yahoo


No problem, let the browser window open and when it has finished loading, click on the address bar and type in www.yahoo.com hit enter and let Yahoo load up, actually just get it to the page that you want as your home page. When you get there click on the "Tools" button, the one next to help and scroll down to the bottom and click on "Internet Options". When the window comes up, the first area will be for the home page. Click on "Use Current", this will make the current page viewed the Homepage....click apply and OK.

I can sign in but cannot check my mail.- "Not Responding" For the last five days I've not been able to check my mail. The reply I get is " not responding ", Then all I have to do is close the browser.


I can sign into my Yahoo, but once I put in my password and click to open, at the bottom it says "opening page about:blank" but never opens, just freezes there. I cannot access my yahoo mail either. Is this problem witrh yahoo going to resolved soon? How can one access their yahoo mail until then? I found one link with three links for accessing, but all you get is a page that you can see you have mail, but you cannot open anything. All you can do is mark as read, etc, or delete all.

Yahoo is totally shut down with error messages. hw will i be able to check email if yahoo as totally shut down from my computer?? same with facebook as per usual the system is slow not responding same with...


Sounds like you have some sort of infection on the computer. Would be odd for both Yahoo and Facebook to be down at the same time. Also you mentioned your computer is running slow and not responding which furthers the thought of malware/virus on the PC.

To scan for an infection I would recommend (2) pieces of software. The first one is "MALWARE BYTES ANTI-MALWARE" & the second would be "AVG ANTIVIRUS". If you click on the title of both of those softwares it will take you to the download page. Download them and run them to get your system cleaned up. If that does not work come back and let me know and we can further troubleshoot the issue!!
