    Disable the service Ati Hotkey POLLER.

    ATI Hotkey POLLER service is installed if you update to the latest ATI video card drivers. ATI Hotkey POLLER provides the ability to hot key your display settings for what ever reason you would need this feature.

    You don't need this anyway

I type a webpage in no matter if its mail or not and says webpage not available plus when connected to yahoo messenger it disconnects and connects back up all the time

Clearly your internet connection is tenuous. Get that right and get your local network from whatever's bogging it down using router QoS or other setings, and you're back in operation.

I can not return to the old yahoo mail classic at all . I have tried every thing but nothing helps.

here are some options: 1st: If you are using IE go to tools >internet options >security. Click on the "custom level" button, go to the scripting section and disable active scripting. If you are using Firefox go to tools ? options ? content. Click on disable Javascript. When you go to Yahoo mail it will indicate that you must use Classic and will give a link. Once done you can return to the previous Javascript settings. 2nd: to revert to Classic Mail. Lower your screen resolution from the Control Panel, then Display and the Settings tab. As soon as it's too low for the new mail, you will get a message displayed asking if you want to switch to Mail Classic. Click "yes". (The usual setting is 1024 x 768 for most monitors.) 3rd: At the very top of the screen once you log into yahoo it should give you the option to go to classic yahoo mail. I am not fond of the new one either and thats what i did 4th: Click Options on the mail screen, then click Switch to Classic Mail. If it asks if you are sure you want to switch, click Yes 5th: These link are still working today, July 16, 2011 and will RETURN and launch your email back to Classic Mail. as will this link: 6th: I have a Yahoo! Plus account, there is an option there to switch back to Yahoo! Classic, which I have done and it remains, and perhaps that is an option for you. The Yahoo! Plus account is $19.99 (US) a year. 7th: Numerous solutions for various browsers and different versions of Windows people use, this is the best solution. Link to: is The link is to an answer given by another person, Katie M, who posted a very good answer that addresses browsers and Windows here on Yahoo!Answers to help you switch back.

Please put me back on my classic e-mail I do not like the new one

I apologise for the slowness in response time. I am going through the list of questions on this site and just found yours.

You can be returned back to Classic Mail by Yahoo itself. This is a manual switch, not something you do yourself, so it will not be immediate.

You will need to contact Yahoo at the address below. Please follow these instructions in order to return. Please put in the subject line: I want to return to Mail Classic.

I understand you would like to return to Classic Mail in your Yahoo!
Mail Account. I know this can be frustrating, I apologize for the
inconvenience this may be causing you. I'd be happy to address this for

If you would prefer to use Yahoo! Mail Classic, I would be glad to
switch your account to that version.

In order to make this change to your account, I will need your written
permission. If you would like to switch to Classic, please reply to this
email with the following information:

* Please confirm that you would like me to switch your account to Yahoo!
Mail Classic

* Please let us know why you would like to switch. We're eager to
understand what features of the newest version of Yahoo! Mail we can
change or improve; and your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience you've experienced; and we
hope we can help improve your experience using Yahoo! Mail.

I hope that with this information your issues have been resolved, if you
have further questions or need additional help please contact us back.

Windows mail gave me this error message: Account: 'yahoo mail', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR popgate unknown command', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server...

If you have Yahoo! Mail Plus (a paid upgrade), you can access those messages directly from a standard email program (such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail, etc.). You need to configure the account settings in your email program for the Yahoo service.

The settings for incoming mail are:
Incoming (POP) server:
Port: 995
Security: SSL

For more on Yahoo server settings, see this Yahoo help page:

For details on configuring the WLM email program, see this Microsoft help page:

and this additional page on port & SSL settings:

Yahoo mail is VERY slow

I am a Computer Software Expert. I believe that Yahoo! has lately made silly mistakes in their Yahoo! Mail in software/hardware side. The Mail is extremely slow even I have a super computer. This problem is Yahoo! Mail's problem; it has nothing to do with your PC as anyone uses it will suffer nowadays. In the past, it was nice and fast. Now it is Yahoo! Garbage Mail, so they should change the name!
