Re: yahoo radio problems

The problem may also be that you have too many temporary internet files stored. These are normal files that are stored when you visit a website so when you come back to that site, the pages load much faster. They leave some of the website's information on your computer so it doesn't have as much to download when you return.

Try (for VISTA users) going to START>Control Panel>System and Maintenance> and right under the "Administrative Tools" headline you'll find "Free Up Disk Space" click that and it'll ask you what drive you'd like to clean up, select the drive you want (usually drive "C") and click ok, when it finishes figuring out how much space it will free up, make sure all the check boxes are checked in the window that pops up, especially the one marked "Temporary Internet Files" and click ok. This may take some time if it's the first time you're doing this so just be patient and let it do it's thing. After it's complete, it will automatically close and you can try the Yahoo! Radio again.

If you are on XP (or VISTA), you should be able to find "Disk Cleanup" in START>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup. Then follow the same procedure as before, choose the disk (usually "C") then click ok, check all the boxes, then click ok.

Because Yahoo! Radio uses streaming media, it's trying to download the song at the same time it's playing and there's no room left in the temporary internet file folder so it has to play catch up the whole time, that's why it'll stutter.

If you go through all of that and you are still having a problem, let us know with a comment to this thread so we know what we've done so far and we'll try to help you out again. If it is your internet connection, you should have had this problem since you got the internet and it wouldn't be a new problem, but if it has been like this the whole time, you don't have enough bandwith to handle that much streaming and downloading at once. If that's the case, I'm sorry but the only thing you can do is upgrade your internet connection. First, try my suggestion.

Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!

I keep losing my connection plus it downloads super slow

I have the same problem. I have narrowed the problem down to having too many simultaneous connections.I can surf all day long with no problem but when I start downloaded via a torrent or if I play an online game in a room with 32 players, my connection eventually grinds to a halt. No amount of tech visits to your house will ever uncover the problem because your line speeds and voltages will appear normal. Swapping out the modem for another of the same kind won't fix the problem because the issues appears to be inherent in the modem. When downloading torrents you'll have to limit the number of connections your computer will accept.

Sending music vai e mail(outlook express)

Hi Mark, not really a solution to your problem but instead of using email to send your friend music files you could try using a messenger service ( yahoo or windows live etc) and you will find the files are sent much faster also.
Hope this helps you good luck

to start off go to add/remove programs and uninstall yahoo toolbar. Then go to to download the msn toolbar. That way no pop up blocker can stop it. About the DSL speed - experience has told me that your dsl modem is bad and replacing it would work. Provided you already did you could to remove spyware/malware using utilities such as SpyBot Defender, Windows Defender, and Lavasoft Ad-aware. All of those programs are free and I would advise you to try those first.
