My wife has an HP Desktop using Windows 7 and email client of ATT and Yahoo


This may work for you: Along the top of Yahoo email, you will see buttons Delete, Reply, etc. There is a button in the row with 3 rectangles and a drop down arrow. click on the button and change the setting to "Page by Page (classic". After Yahoo email resets, go in and select the button again to get the style you want.

Another approach may be to sign out of yahoo email, restart the web browser and see if the problem is resolved.

Google Chrome is another milestone in Google?s grand plans of world domination ?...


Google Chrome is another milestone in Google’s grand plans of world domination — and they are finding very few people who complain. Chrome is an extremely fast and lightweight browser. It packs in a ton of features in a minimal interface, and introduces some novel ideas to the whole idea of browsing. The top bar and the menu bar have been omitted completely, leaving a rather large space for browsing.

Inspect Memory Usage
Chrome
has some advanced options for inspecting memory usage. Right-click on the browser tab in the start bar select ‘Task Manager’. You will get a window showing how much memory is being used by each tab in the browser. Now click on ‘Stats for Nerds’ and a new tab will open in the browser, with a process ID, name of the site, memory and virtual memory usage. The great thing about this feature is that if you are using other browsers at the same time, then the tab shows the memory usage by that browser as well.

Bookmarks
To
bookmark a page, click on the star icon next to the address bar. To access the list of bookmarks at any point of time during browsing, key in [Ctrl] + [B]. To make it disappear, use the same shortcut again.

Incognito Mode
Chrome
has a secret mode that allows you to surf the Web anonymously. On the top right corner of the browser, to the right of the address bar is the page control button. Click on it and select ‘New incognito window’ or [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [N]. The sites surfed using this mode will not appear in the history, and the cookies they store on the system will be deleted as soon as the tab is closed.

Make Google Chrome Your Default Browser
Click on the ‘Customize and Control Google Chrome’ button to the right of the address bar, click on ‘Options’ and under ‘Default browser’ click on the ‘Make Google Chrome my default browser’ button.

Navigation Tips
Right-click on the back and next buttons to go through a recent history of visited Web sites. Drag and drop any tab from the browser into the desktop to start a browser with just that tab open. To open a tab you have just closed by mistake, use the keys [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [T]. Use [Ctrl] + [1] to [9] to cycle through tabs from the keyboard.

Expand Text Boxes
This is a very useful feature for use in any kind of site that requires you to fill in text in a text area. When you come across a text area in a forum or a form in a Web site, just click on the bottom right corner of the text area, click and drag it as per your requirements.

Inspect Memory Usage By A Site
Right-click on any empty space in the Web page, click on inspect element. This is, by the way, how you view the source code of a site on Chrome. Once here, click on the first line of the HTML code, which will effectively select the entire site. Then click on resources. This shows up the usage of memory by each element in the Web page. You can sort the elements by time or by size. If you reload the page, every image and script on the page shows up in the graph and gets plotted in real time.

Prevent Phishing Attacks


• Did you ever receive an email that appeared to be from your bank? • Did you click a link that sent you to what looked like your bank's website?• Did you enter your username and password?• When you clicked submit, did the site turn out to be bogus? If you said yes to any of these questions then you may have been ‘phished’. Phishing is a hacker term that essentially means trolling for personal or financial information. Phishing is also a crime! Millions of people online, 3.3 million in fact, fall victim to ‘social engineering’ such as clicking on tainted links in emails, receiving legitimate looking emails that direct you to poisoned sites to steal passwords and usernames, or any number of malicious ploys to get you to give up your personal information. Simply put, the perpetrators of these scams intend on selling your information or using it in some manner for personal gain. However, there are ways to stop them before they get you. Phishing (pronounced ‘fishing’), is the act of misleading people into turning over sensitive information under false pretenses. ‘Spoofing’ or ‘brand spoofing’ is when a hacker copies or crafts web pages and emails from the spoofed sites web site content. These emails and web pages are the used as bait. Once the victim takes the bait, the hacker proceeds to bleed victims financially from the information they glean. In 2007, victims of phishing lost an average of $886 per person. That’s $3.2 billion (USD). The number of people who actually got their money back is astoundingly lower. Only 1.6 million recovered money lost to phishing scams, that’s just over half of last years victims. You’ll be interested to know two things about phishing. If you know what to look for you know what to ignore. If your email provider is worth their salt, and you have a good mail client, these lures never see the light of day.

Instruction On How To Prevent Phishing Atacks :

    Steps to Fight Phishing
  1. Step 1 Gmail is at the top of the line when it comes to filtering out spam. Google offers infinitely better spam protection than AOL or Yahoo. What’s more, Google’s email service, Gmail, is free.
  2. Step 2 Abandon outdated mail clients. Upgrade to Lotus Notes, Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird. I know for a fact people still use Outlook Express. If you use it, uninstall it and get something else.
  3. Step 3 Never follow links in an email claiming to be from your bank. Ignore these types of emails. Banking institutions never ask you to verify your online banking username and password, except perhaps during initial sign-up, though this is not a common practice. These links may lead to a website that looks like your bank’s site but is not.
  4. Step 4 The website linked to in the email may ask you to enter your username and password. Do not do this until you have verified you are dealing with your banking institution. Call customer service and ask if this is a common practice. If customer service tells you it is not common practice, notify them of the email you received, as well as the url in the email. Indicators are bad urls, no padlock icon in your browser or other security indicators missing from your usual online banking session experience.
  5. Step 5 The next step in protection is to install a good Anti-Virus and firewall. Some products for you to consider are:• AVG Free • Avast! Anti-Virus • ZoneAlarm • BlackICE PC Protection
  6. Step 6 Adjust you browser settings to tighten up security especially if you use web based email. If you receive an email with a bad link in it, add the link to your 'Restricted Sites'. To do this go to Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Security. On the 'Security' tab go to 'Restricted Sites', move the slider to 'high' and remember to add blocked sites so the computer knows whom to trust. Do the same in your email client and firewall. If you are using IE, the rule of thumb is to uninstall IE and use:• Mozilla Fire Fox• Maxthon Web Browser

In this way , you can prevent phishing attacks .
