I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but most free repair programs are malware themselves. :(

In these situations its usually best to backup all of your documents and reinstall your operating system, I know its a pain, but its usually the easiest solution at this point.

My yahoomail cannot open because of invalid password which is not true i have entered the right yahoo id and password of mine.


Try to resent password to your mail (find link around password input). When it come to your mail, use copy-paste to be sure that it is not some keyboard problem. Sometimes locales has different position for zy. Don't use special character in your password. When you going in account, change your password with new one. Because someone know your password too. Test computer for viruses (AVG is good free antivirus) because viruses can steal your passwords.

Keep getting error code 20 when I search my emails. Any help would be much appreciated??


Hi there,
I believe this relates to a problem with you pc and nothing to do with Yahoo mail. The root of the problem is your computers registry and this can be caused by several different things the most common are viruses.
I recommend:
You run a virus scan and clear out your PC. If you don't have any anti-virus software then the best anti-virus (which happens to be free) is Microsoft Security Essentials: http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ this is free as long as your copy of Windows is legal. If it is not then I recommend AVG free edition: http://free.avg.com/gb-en/homepage . Download, install, run a virus scan, clear any threats.
Next you need to get yourself a piece of software to clear up your damaged registry (even if no viruses were found). I highly recommend CCleaner: http://download.cnet.com/ccleaner/ . It's free and very simple to use, simply download, install, analyse your registry and click the ok button.
Once this has completed, run it again until no more registry errors are found.
Restart your PC, and try Yahoo mail again.

Hijacked email addresses


It is probably due to a virus, or exploit on your machine. I would start by installing and running Spybot Search and Destroy. You can get that here. If that doesn't resolve the issue, then run Malwarebytes. You can get that from here.

Yahoo Tool Bar Will Not Work


Try Deleting and re-installing the Yahoo Tool Bar,,,

AVG kept its eyes on Yahoo for viruses. Now that AVG is gone, Re-install Yahoo so it will not look for AVG either.
