It could be very well be a virus. I would get a more well-known anti-virus software than Spyware Doctor. Typically with free versions or the cheaper ones, they don't protect nearly as well as the more expensive ones. Norton is one I recommend constantly. I love it and it protects against everything pretty much. McAfee is a really good one to.

I lost my emails since I upgraded from windoows xp to windows 7


Features available through Yahoo! Mail include unlimited storage, the ability to view photos and videos from your inbox and the ability to send 50 files or 100MB worth of attachments in a single email.

You can also access Yahoo!'s instant messaging software from your inbox and check email on your mobile phone and other Internet-enabled devices.

Before signing up for Yahoo! mail, check its compatibility with your version of Internet Explorer.Standard Yahoo! Mail


Yahoo! Mail's standard interface works with Internet Explorer 7 and higher. However, Internet Explorer 7 users may be unable to use the reply bar, slideshows or Yahoo! Messenger from their inbox.

To access these features, use at least Internet Explorer 9. All Internet Explorer users must have Windows 7, XP or Vista to use the standard form of Yahoo! mail. Mac operating systems using Internet Explorer are not supported by the current version of Yahoo! Mail.
Older Option


Users who want to use Yahoo! Mail Classic will find it compatible with Internet Explorer 6, as well as newer versions of the browser.

Yahoo! announced to customers in July 2011 that it would soon stop supporting Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo! Mail Classic works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.

Yahoo! Mail Classic lacks many of the upgrades found in the current version of the email program.

Upgrades
While Yahoo! Mail supports older versions of Internet Explorer, the company recommends that users upgrade to the most current version.

Yahoo! says using the newest browser software provides more speed and added protection against viruses and software.
Enabling ActiveX

If you plan to use the current version of Yahoo! Mail on a Windows machine, you'll want to enable your computer's ActiveX controls so you can access all the features of the email program.

To do this, go to the "Tools" menu or the gear symbol in Internet Explorer, then select "Internet Options" and "Security."

Click on "Internet," then "Custom Level."
Scroll down to "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting." Enable each of these options and save your settings.

Reboot Internet Explorer.

How To Return To Classic Yahoo Mail...Permanently


Something strange happened while browsing at a cybercafe. I logged into yahoo mail on a windows XP system & was told my browser doesn't support the features of the new yahoo mail. Then I was given the option to return to classic mail temporarily or permanently. I chose the latter and right now I'm at home using yahoo mail classic. Here's the trick:
1. Get an old browser version of Internet explorer. The easiest way to do this is to get a copy of windows XP service pack 2 or 3 which comes with internet explorer 6. (the cafe I was in used this).

2. Install XP. You won't want to mess up your PC or laptop just for this so grab something old. You can also use Virtual-PC, VM-ware or any good desktop virtualization software. Do a clean install. Don't install anything else unless it helps you connect to the internet. Don't install flash player or any plugins yet.

3. Go online and log into your yahoo mail account. Yahoo will apologise and give you two options: (i) Return to classic yahoo for this session.....ignore this. (ii) Switch back to classic yahoo mail....second link, click this.

That's it guys...enjoy. I'm going to confirm this on other browsers as well.

I have Yahoo mail but when I go to craigs list to try to mail people outlook express comes up and I can't email back. Do you folks have instructions on what to do to get it to answer in yahoo mail?


When Outlook Express starts, highlight the E-mail ID that is in the 'TO:' field, and "copy" the text to the Windows Clipboard.

Then, open another browser-window (or tab), and login to your Yahoo! E-mail, and "compose" a new message, and "paste" from the Windows Clipboard into the 'TO:' field.

Jumping cursor while using skype messenger or yahoo mail composer


Skype and other Video or Voice over the internet do requires CPU computations heavily. And this is why cursor movements jumps insteads of moves. Those software used more CPU power than the Touchpad.
To prove this is the case, try use Skype Voice call and see how jumpy the cursor is, then try Video Call and compare how jumpy. If Video call jumps a lot more than Voice then this is the case that the CPU is overloaded. Try reduce as much as possible the visual effects of Skype and Windows XP. By the way, software Antivirus and Firewall may also contribute CPU overloading during use of Skype.
Either improve your laptop hardware (add more ram, etc.) or get your XP tuned up to improve performance.

Default yahoo email


If you use Yahoo! Mail for all your email needs, some of the amenities of Windows seem to elude you. A click on an email link in your browser brings up Outlook Express or another desktop email program, not a new message in Yahoo! Mail. Trying to send a file directly from Word, OpenOffice.org or another office application yields the same, unsatisfactory result.

Fortunately, the state of dissatisfaction need not be permanent. It will be overcome by making Yahoo! Mail act as your default email program in Windows, which, if you use Windows 95 or later is an easy thing to do.
Make Yahoo! Mail Your Default Windows Email Program

To set up Yahoo! Mail as your default email client in Windows:

* Download and install Yahoo! Messenger.
* Select Tools | Internet Options... from the menu in Internet Explorer.
* Go to the Programs tab.
* Make sure Yahoo! Mail is selected under E-mail.
* Click OK.

Yahoo! as Default Email: Does Not Work under Windows Vista

Unfortunately, Yahoo! Mail as your default email program may be hard-wired to use Internet Explorer instead of your default browser, and it does not work in Windows Vista.
Make Yahoo! Mail the Default Email Composer in Mozilla Firefox

In Mozilla Firefox, you can turn to the Mailto 2 Webmail script for Greasemonkey to have Yahoo! Mail handle email links (even under Windows Vista).
