If you are using FIREFOX and your computer is redirecting you to Yahoo and then a bunch of non-relevant sites, you may not have a virus at all. I had this issue for months and could not figure it out. Turns out, it was some add-ons by the same company, SPIGOT, (don't ask how they got there, I don't know!) But once removed, everything was fine.

  1. When your Firefox browser is open go to TOOLS
  2. Click on Add-ons
  3. Go to Extensions
  4. Start looking for any by the company SPIGOT (will likely be greyed out because it's not compatible with updated Firefox
  5. Uninstall the SPIGOT extensions. (Amazon, Ebay and a couple others most likely. Personal experience, there were 4 add extensions to delete.)
  6. Clear history and Close Firefox.
  7. Reopen and should be good as new!
This also removes that annoying 'Hot Deals' tab that shows up in your browser. Don't bother with all that DNS changing stuff until you've tried this. I tried DNS first and of course it didn't work. The problem was in the Firefox extensions.

Contact yahoo.com using their help page. This is probably not an Apple Macintosh issue.

Cannot play yahoo games


Well, you could very well be behind a firewall that is blocking access to the port that these games need to use.
According to Yahoo: If you are behind a firewall or using a proxy server, you may be unable to play Yahoo! Games. Firewalls need to open port 11999. You will need TCP inbound and outbound access for this port. The games hosts are currently yog1.yahoo.com, yog2.yahoo.com, ... up to yog33.yahoo.com. You will need to do a nslookup on these hosts to find out the IP addresses.

I cannot access my new email and address list


If I am understanding you correct, you should be able to log into your yahoo account through your browser by using the username and password you set the acount up with.

Mail


Hi, just to clarify you are trying to consolidate all of your email to the Mail.app program on your Mac, correct? It's not too tough and I'll let you know a secret. Yahoo normally doesnt allow you to do this without being part of their pay program but they launched "IMAP" support for all free clients. 
The first thing you need to do is open your Mail program (The one on your dock at the bottom of the screen). Then click Mail>Preferences> Then click the + sign in the bottom left hand corner.
Put in your name, your yahoo email account (Example AKeech@yahoo.ca) and password. Uncheck Automatically setup my account and click next.
Click the drop down box that says POP and choose IMAP. Replace the info under incoming mail server with imap.next.mail.yahoo.com. Click next.
Check the SSL box and click next again.
Under description put yahoo Replace the information in Outgoing email server with smtp.next.mail.yahoo.com. Put in your email address (remember the @yahoo) and password one more time and click continue. Click continue again, confirm your information and click create.
Your done and your email is good to go.
