    I have the same issue but only on 1 particular laptop. It says my Yahoo ID is invalid, even on the password help pages.

    I use the Yahoo ID and same Password on other computers.

    It's like a spyware is trying to hijack my user ID on Yahoo.

    Various virus scans detect nothing. This laptop has no other issus.

    If anyone knows what kind of spyware/virus this is, please let me know how to remove it.

See if there is a CAPS lock turned on or something !! make sure you are entering correct password --> this means got any capital letters/special charaters etc..
If not try checking the link I forgot my pssword under sing-in tabs ;
Other than this someone might have changed you password or else there is a problem with ur internet connection/browser connections.
it'd be more easy if u furnish more details plzz..

Outlook Express not accepting my password

If you have entered the correct username and password (sometimes your login will require you to enter your full email address, i.e. instead of just johndoe), you will need to make sure you have entered the correct information for your e-mail provider. This includes correctly configuring for POP3/IMAP, as well as any encryption necessary to log in, such as TLS/SSL.

The host 'SMTP' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'SMTP', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error...

You want to use these settings to  configure a mail client for yahoo:

Incoming mail server settings
POP server:
Port: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings
SMTP server:
Port: 465 (or 587 if your ISP is blocking 465)

And, of course, you also need to put in:
Username (yahoo login username)
Email Address
Password (yahoo password)

Good luck!
