To make yahoo your home page just go to yahoo.com once there go to tools that is in the browser click on inter options and in the first block click on use current page you can down load the tool bar from the yahoo,com site
my understanding is that you need to have yave yahoo plus to get this to work, yahoo plus is the paid version for you to have pop access which means be able to use an email client (like outlook) to retrieve yahoo mail there.
now if you have not paid for yahoo plus you can do the following:
1. switch your yahoo account to be localized to asia, which should also (for now) allow you to use pop access on a free yahoo account, you need to look around into the account options (Its under Account Info, Account Settings,Set Language Site and Time Zone or something like that)
2. once 1 has been completed go into yahoo and add your yahoo account,
* for logon info use only your yahoo user name (not the @yahoo.com)
* enter your correct password
*for incoming email server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
*for outgoing email server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
3. go into more settings>advance
* incoming server port should be 110
*outgoing server port should be 587
Sounds like your "Outgoing" mail server settings aren't correct.
Yahoo! E-Mail Server Settings
Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)
POP Yahoo! Mail Plus server settings
Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)
If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts. I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.
Remove icons from the Startup folder Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder: NOTE:Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program. 1.Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected. 2.Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs . 3.Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window. 4.To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab. 5.Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK . 6.Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop. 7.Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file. 8.Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working. If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
