Re: yahoo mail problem
Are you using a cable modem, or a router. if you're using a router, you may need to open a port, aka port forwarding, or you may need to just turn off the firewall altogether. if you end up taking the firewall off, make sure to get a good anti-virus and a good malware protector. contact me if this does not solve the problem

You're asking in the Yahoo mail category. Are you unable to access Yahoo mail or BT mail?
If it's BT mail, and you've switched from BT, you're likely out of luck as you would no longer have authorization to access their servers, as those would be restricted to BT servers. This is why independent email services (such as Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo mail) are nice - they're not tied to any one internet company and can follow you no matter how many times you switch.
Your "access point" means the thing that your computer connects to in order to get on the internet. An "access point" can be the dsl modem, a router or switch inbetween the computer and the internet connection or the point of entry to the internet - depending on what you are using to connect and get on line.
You mentioned you have a broad band connection with t mobile. Is this the T mobile home service link that gives you regular phone service and internet? If so - what is the name of the box your connecting your phone and pc to?
What is the name of the equipment that t mobile gave you to use that broad band link?
Are you using a desktop or a laptop? Wireless connection? or a wired connection with a ethernet cable (looks like a phone cable but a little bigger on the plug end)?
To answer my questions go back to your original problem posted on fixya and use the comment or reply link in blue.
Being the main BT account holder, yesterday I found that each time I try to gain access to my Yarhoo Mail the screen goes blank with the words "Server hang up". Other users of this property broad band phone number are still able to connect to their Yarhoo Mail. Even from different computers at different locations the same thing occurs on my email address. My husband has given me his email address below, so I can hopefully see your reply via his laptop.
the server has timeout short is 1min to 5min, if you take longer than this you receive this error. so maybe change for ADSL Internet. Is less expensive than Dial up (30days use and 1 to 3h/day), and more bandwith (start on 4Mb Band, instead of 128K on Dial up ) than low level Internet Priority.
Choose Tools > Internet Options > Connections Under Dial-Up and Virtual Private Network Settings, if there is an entry in there select it and choose the Settings button If not then choose the LAN Settings button instead Now click to add a tick to the box which says Use a proxy server for this connection OR Use a proxy server for your LAN or something similar. In the Address: box type - webcache.virginmedia.com (or whatever other you are using) In the Port: box type 8080 Click OK and OK again and restart Internet Explorer
If you are a New Media customer you might want to try this because it worked for me:
In Internet Explorer Choose Tools > Internet Options > Connections Under Dial-Up and Virtual Private Network Settings, if there is an entry in there select it and choose the Settings button If not then choose the LAN Settings button instead Now click to add a tick to the box which says Use a proxy server for this connection OR Use a proxy server for your LAN or something similar.
In the Address: box type - webcache.virginmedia.com In the Port: box type 8080 Click OK and OK again and restart Internet Explorer
You might also need to change back to Yahoo! Classic, when you can get in to do it, that is.
Also my suggestion is open an email account with another provider such as Hotmail or Google or use Outlook then when you can get into Yahoo! Mail activate mail forwarding to your new account and export your contacts to your new account.

you need to re-enter the username and password for the broadband connection. Log in to the router and go through the connection wizard, but you MUST have the name and password that you were given by the provider.

Ccleaner is a very powerful utility and should be used with care, it's always a good idea to back up your registry before carrying out any work on a pc as registry can be restored to the date before work was done if things go bottom up ... for your info, a good registry backup tool is ERUNT ( see google )
But back to your problem...XP has a system restore function, where you can restore your system to a system restore point prior to the damage being done, however I would strongly suggest you backup your registry before using system restore.
System restore can be found under "system tools" in "accessories" ... Hope it helps !
