I cannot seem to open any web site that is related
I try to log onto Yahoo, yahoo mail, yahoo fantasy sports, or yahoo search.. anything related to yahoo and I cannot access any of these web sites. I have run virus scans and malware scans and spybot scans all come up negative as far as viruses or problems.
This is what I get when I try to access these web sites...
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:
Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
There might be a typing error in the address.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.
For offline users

Click Tools , and then click Work Offline.
Click the Favorites Center button , click History, and then click the page you want to view.
Re: I cannot seem to open any web site that is related
It's good that you have narrowed down the problem to when your laptop is at your work. I have two suggestions for narrowing it down further, (1) tell us exactly what error you get from Firefox when you try to access yahoo sites from your work (2) try a ping before and after you have a problem getting to yahoo sites. (You might want to try this a few times to see if it is consistent.)
If ping says 0% loss before and after you have a problem accessing Yahoo at work, then that suggests the problem is NOT with your wireless router (unless it is doing filtering). Instead, it would be more likely an issue with filtering/blocking/firewall or web cache/proxy. It might even be a deliberate decision by your work-place to block access to Yahoo for employees.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

First try to see that your password is correct or not. Log into mail.yahoo.com and if you are able to login website. Then try terminating yahoo from task manager ( do ctrl+alt+del to open task manager). Go to processes tab on task manager and search for YahooMessenger.exe, right click and click on end process. Start yahoo messenger again and try logging in again.
If this doesnt work, you can try uninstalling and installing the yahoo again. But after unstallation make sure to remove all the remain of files related to yahoo. Hope this solves the problem, it did for me.
Logging into Yahoo mail results in "opening page about: blank" IE browser hang. This is not caused by a virus, trojan, spyware or anything like that! Yahoo have been making changes to the appearance of their home page and also their e-mail, you've probably seen the new choices. As a result, the screen resolution of 800 x 600 on many PCs will no-longer allow you to sign in without the "opening page about: blank" IE browser hanging problem. Try changing your screen resolution to 1024 x 768, that should cure it! Right click on desktop / Properties / Settings and move slider to 1024 x 768
somehow the yahoo site is blocked..Ok try this In the drive you have installed ur OS search for the file named "hosts".When you find it open it with notepad and in that search for yahoo.com..If it is there in the list..then just remove it..It will be something like.. 127.0.01 www.yahoo.com..And then just save(dont select save as because it will be saved as a text file) and that should do the trick.. Let me know what happened before you rate..
