In yahoo mail I Can't bring up email in out box keeps clocking
I've (also) recently experienced more than the usual amount of "clocking" when checking yahoo mail ... i.e. system busy icon ... which doesn't enable you to do much else.
When the "clocking" is shown, the system is busy because it's doing something else in the background. Sometimes, it's downloading stuff - something else, like software updates, ad's, pop-up screens, images & videos for ad's, etc.), updating previous webpages, checking for updates to software (on your computer), and/or running some (other) programs ... which may include spyware, ad-tracking software, malware, security / virus scanning applications, etc.
Yes, yahoo mail downloads a lot of "junk" (advertisements) ... particularly since it's a free tool. One way to reduce this volume of downloads is to set your browser to not accept pop-ups, to only accept cookies from the webpages you visit, to not store or update previous webpages, to delete old webpages (from history), to delete (internet-temporary) cache when closing the browser, and to delete your cookies ... just to get rid of ad tracking cookies that spawns processes/apps that bring down other advertisements related to what you've been doing/searching, viewing, etc..
If yahoo mail is not responding (e.g. mail server is slow), it will display a message accordingly. And the "clocking" won't last long. Sometimes, your system slows down because it retains lots of "old" or "temporary" stuff and/or your disk is quite full and/or fragmented causing it to take longer to access data/files, and/or your registry is cluttered up with un-used stuff. In such a case, it helps to clean out the "junk" (e.g. using CCleaner ) and de-frag your disks (regularly).
Sometimes, it helps to shut down and boot the system again (after cleaning out the junk, etc.)
Some may even suggest you get a faster processor, a faster internet connection and/or a bigger disk ... ;-)
