My sign-in page for Yahoo! is blinking

I have had My Yahoo! set as my home page for several years. Suddenly for the last 2 days when I open Internet Explorer, the sign-in page for Yahoo! appears but is flashing or blinking and does not accept any input.

    My Yahoo sign-in page also blinks in my home computer's IE7 browser. All computers are using XP Professional 32-bit. It doesn't blink in the Firefox browser on the same computer, nor does it blink in IE7 on my work computer or on my husband's computer, which is identical to mine. The computers are connected to cable modem using a cabled (non-wireless) home router.

    My "solution" so far is to access Yahoo using Firefox.

    I'm running Windows xp and IE7. Last night for the first time, my Yahoo sign in page starts blinking as soon as you hit "sign in" and accepts no input. GRRRRRR!!!!!! First a Spybot box opens, passing thru the main Yahoo page, saying it blocked "DoubleClick." Ok. So I even experimented by unclicking "DoublClick" in the Spyware Blaster. No help. Ran RegScan, Spybot, Spyware Blaster and a thorough up-to-date avast! anti-virus. The avast! found 1 malware called "NoCheat2" which I assume it fixed. Still locked out of Yahoo! A friend tried on their computer. They encountered no problem at Yahoo sign in page. Any REAL answers around here for an everyday person who is not fluent in all the shorthand? What the heck is "32-bit" for instance and how is it relevant?? A Yahoo person jump in here maybe? Just tell me how to fix it. Thanks all. m

    My solution, like Ginnie's, has been to use Firefox for internet browsing. I have anti-spyware and anti-virus installed on my computer and it does not find any malicious software. BTW, my computer is running Windows XP Professional x-64, if that makes a difference.

I would agree, it is probably a virus or spyware of some kind. Get AVG or Ewido, Spybot, and Avirab AntiVir.

Most likely a virus or spyware that redirects the have any virus or spyware protection? if so run deep scans for both and clean out temp files and clear history.

The solution to the blinking Yahoo sign-in page is to delete the blocked cookie. Right-click the Internet Explorer icon on the desktop, select Properties, go to the Privacy tab, select Sites, and scroll down to the Always blocked in the listing. Select it and click on the Remove button.
