I can't log in to yahoo's services

I spent hours trying to figure this out and clueless now... i can't log into flickr with my yahoo ID... but i am able to do access my flickr account from my work computer. Basically i get to a page that says that i couldn't log in cause i don't have cookies enabled... i tried turning off my antivirus, i opened my browser to see how the cookies are set and that is fine... i tried opening a new browser... i tried deleting cookies... i tried accepting 3rd party cookies, i came to the conclusion that somehow it has something to do with yahoo. I went to post a question on yahoo's "Ask a Question" and received an email stating that someone answered my question... but i was not able to see it... part of the answer is in the email... but when i go to click on read more.... it takes me to my page where my question is posted and says there are NO responses to my question. I have also tried running my spyware programs that result in no spyware is on my comp.. my yahoo messenger works fine... the only change that i made is that i switched ISP from cable company to AT&T last week .. ihave also sent several emails to flickr with no success or real answer to my problem.

OK try deleting EVERYTHING from you C:\Windows\temp.. Better still run "Disk Clean Up" and get everything. Also delete all ya old "Cookies" & "Settings". Try another "Browser" Often one of the below "Browsers" will work when one of the other don't. try Firefox, Also Opera is great too. Ensure you have IE7 installed if ya use Internet explorer, and ALL updates..

How do I delete my yahoo account

Sign in to your Yahoo! account. You will need to sign in with the account that you want to delete. If you forgot your password, follow the password recovery link at the login page.
Open the Yahoo! homepage. Scroll down and click the Help link at the bottom-right corner of the page. Click the My Account link at the bottom of the Help page.
  • Select the "Register or delete account" section in the Account page.
  • Click the "Closing your Yahoo! account" link.
  • Click the "Account Termination" link in the middle of the page.
  • Enter your login information again. Even if you are already logged in, you will need to log in again. This helps prevent accounts from being deleted if they're left open somewhere.

Read the Account Termination notification page. Note that deleting your Yahoo! account will revoke access to the entire Yahoo! services bundle, which includes your Yahoo! Mail, ID, Contacts, Flickr account, and more.
  • If you have any Yahoo! paid services, unsubscribe from them before deleting your Yahoo! account. If you don't you may continue to get billed even if your account is deleted.
  • Enter your password. In order to confirm deletion, you will need to enter your password again. You will also need to fill out the CAPTCHA to prove that the deletion request is not automated. Click the "YES Terminate this Account" button.
  • Your account details will be saved by Yahoo! for about 90 days.
  • The deletion process is not reversible.

Log-in on my yahoo mail ID

Good evening, Josephine!
Sorry that you're having this issue. I highly doubt someone has taken your account over unless your password was something really simple. If you cannot log in because of the ID, I would visit the following link and try either the "help" link or the other one listed. :)

1 Answer tells me that my password has expired. What do I need to do?

If you ever find yourself with a locked Yahoo account, it's likely due to multiple incorrect password attempts.

As a security measure, Yahoo's email and chat client servers automatically lock your account to prevent unauthorized access after there have been multiple invalid password entries.

The ID Lock security measure safeguards a Yahoo account from unauthorized users who try to access your account without permission.Cause

After multiple incorrect password entries to a Yahoo account, the server automatically sets a lock on it.
This happens because every time a Yahoo Account holder logs into his account, he's logged in with a cookie.

A cookie is an information packet that proves you are the valid account holder.
However, when a person tries to access an account with many failed attempts, the cookies expires, triggering the ID lock on the account.
24-Hour Wait

A Yahoo account holder must wait up to 24 hours before accessing the account again.
The lock on the account expires within 24 hours from the time the account was locked.

Unlock Using Another Server Since Yahoo! has many servers around the world, a user can log into his account by visiting a different Yahoo server address. (See Below.)

Copy and paste a Yahoo! server URL into the address bar of your Internet browser to access the website.
Enter the Yahoo! ID and password in their respective fields, and click on "Log in" to access your yahoo account.
Avoid Yahoo Account Locks
To prevent future Yahoo! account locks, a user should limit the number of times he tries to enter a password.

If an account holder has forgotten his password, he should use the "Forgot Passsword" feature to reset the password.

I don't want the account anymore !

When you no longer need your Yahoo account, you may decide to delete the account so you will stop receiving Yahoo email and your personal information will be deleted from the website.
Closing your account deletes your membership at all other Yahoo services as well, including Flickr, Monster, Yahoo Groups and Finance Portfolio.
If you are sure you want to cancel your email and delete your Yahoo account, you can do so by visiting the account deletion page.

Open your Web browser and navigate to the account-deletion page on the Yahoo website.
Log in with your username and password.
Verify that the user ID at the top of the page is correct and review the information on the page below, which explains how to end certain paid services, such as subscriptions, the various services that will end when you delete your Yahoo account, and the terms governing your account deletion.
Confirm your identity by entering your password once more in the blank field below "Are you sure you want to terminate your Yahoo! Account?"
Type the security code displayed in the generated box to verify that you are human and wish to delete your account.
Click "Terminate this account."

I cant login to my yahoomail.

Usually when you get the reset cookies token means the internet server/connection is poor.
You can try to log-in on another server or wait for a while (if possible a day or a few hours) to log-in again.
