Question about yahoo Answers
The issues are that I changed my username but the information from that old username still appears when I search for it on the internet despite me changing it. I checked the internet to test if it worked but it did not. I don't want any information regarding my old username available to the internet.
Ever heard the phrase " the internet is forever"? well this is where it comes into play, there are many websites and search engines that link to each other, that being the case one site or engine will have obtained certain information from where the information was hosted (yahoo any information you make public), after obtaining this information the site or engine will then create it own instance of the information, this allows easy access to the information vs having to navigate to the location of the information, without rambling there is no way of telling who might have an instance of the information and how they may share it, even tho links to the information no longer exist. If you can still access the yahoo account then contact them to ensure its closed and ask how long it would take to pull information related to your account, furthermore closing an account does not ensure sub-service has been disabled or deleted, you can attempt to google for the information, once you find the several links to the information contact the company or site owners and ask that the information is removed, but just so you know there is no safe or sure way to remove information from the internet, it's forever--Good Luck.

Your Internet service provider (ISP) requires a username and password to access service features, including Internet and email.
Your ISP should provide this information when you set up your Internet service.
Typically, once you complete the setup and save the information, your router or modem transmits it behind the scenes when you try to access the Internet.
As a result, the username and password can be easily forgotten because they are not used daily.
If you reset your router or simply forget the password, gaining access to network resources and the Internet becomes a challenge.
Call your ISP's technical support department.
Many ISPs set a default username and password for their routers.
If you didn't change the username and password, your ISP can provide the original information.
Before you hang up, make sure the information is correct by entering it and trying to connect to the Internet.
If the information is incorrect and you still cannot get a connection, keep the information for later reference.
Call your router's manufacturer.
The manufacturer of your router sets a username and password prior to shipping the device to your ISP.
Look at the router for the contact information of the manufacturer.
Call their customer service or technical support department and ask for the default information.
Reset your router.
If you changed your router's username and password and cannot remember what you entered, you may have to reset the router.
Insert the resource CD into your computer's CD drive.
When the software installation program starts, search the screen for "Resources" or "Documentation" or "User Manual."
Click the documentation link and search the table of contents for resetting the router.
When you reset the router, the username and password return to the default set by your ISP or manufacturer.
Enter the information provided by your ISP or manufacturer.
Hope this helps.
