The easiest way to fix this problem is to uninstall the Yahoo Toolbar using add/remove programs. Once that is done, your internet should be working again. If you want the yahoo toolbar, you can go back to yahoo.com and download/install it again, and it should work fine.
Today, 12/15/10, I have had to do this on 5 different computers, so my guess is something in the toolbar was updated, and is causing the problems. Reinstalling the toolbar after removing it did not cause further issues.

I lost my emails since I upgraded from windoows xp to windows 7


Features available through Yahoo! Mail include unlimited storage, the ability to view photos and videos from your inbox and the ability to send 50 files or 100MB worth of attachments in a single email.

You can also access Yahoo!'s instant messaging software from your inbox and check email on your mobile phone and other Internet-enabled devices.

Before signing up for Yahoo! mail, check its compatibility with your version of Internet Explorer.Standard Yahoo! Mail


Yahoo! Mail's standard interface works with Internet Explorer 7 and higher. However, Internet Explorer 7 users may be unable to use the reply bar, slideshows or Yahoo! Messenger from their inbox.

To access these features, use at least Internet Explorer 9. All Internet Explorer users must have Windows 7, XP or Vista to use the standard form of Yahoo! mail. Mac operating systems using Internet Explorer are not supported by the current version of Yahoo! Mail.
Older Option


Users who want to use Yahoo! Mail Classic will find it compatible with Internet Explorer 6, as well as newer versions of the browser.

Yahoo! announced to customers in July 2011 that it would soon stop supporting Internet Explorer 6. Yahoo! Mail Classic works with Windows 2000, XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.

Yahoo! Mail Classic lacks many of the upgrades found in the current version of the email program.

Upgrades
While Yahoo! Mail supports older versions of Internet Explorer, the company recommends that users upgrade to the most current version.

Yahoo! says using the newest browser software provides more speed and added protection against viruses and software.
Enabling ActiveX

If you plan to use the current version of Yahoo! Mail on a Windows machine, you'll want to enable your computer's ActiveX controls so you can access all the features of the email program.

To do this, go to the "Tools" menu or the gear symbol in Internet Explorer, then select "Internet Options" and "Security."

Click on "Internet," then "Custom Level."
Scroll down to "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins" and "Script ActiveX Controls Marked Safe for Scripting." Enable each of these options and save your settings.

Reboot Internet Explorer.

Unable to access my e-mails when I click on my inbox as directed through recent upgrade. The little arrow only spins, but does not open my e-mails. I need this problem fixed ASAP. What needs to be done?


Hello!

Actually, the problem is not with your email account, but with your internet browser unable to full access Yahoo.

Two possible fix to your problem, but it requires an hour to fix your email account.

First, whatever internet browser you are using (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.)
clear all caches, remove all cookies and clear everything in your browsing history. This should be done in the TOOLS menu of your internet browser. Then, access again Yahoo and log in.

Second, if the first fix do not work, use alternate internet browser to access your Yahoo mail account. If you do not want to use different browser, I recommend you uninstall it, download an upgrade version and install it to your system.

The next time you access Yahoo mail, it will be successful.

Good Luck!

I keep getting Error 999 when attempting to access my e-mail. I have no security issues, I've cleared history, and I'm wondering why, as I'm reading, "Yahoo has banned my IP address"


First Try This.It might help a bit if you have a corrupt Cache File:-

Clear your browser's caches and cookies. Close the mail page, click Start > Control Panel > Internet Options (or on Internet Explorer toolbar click Tools > Internet Options) and delete Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, and History. You might also click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup > and run Disk Cleanup.

Scripting may be disabled in your Internet Explorer. This may happen due to updates. To enable scripting, follow the instructions on this HELP page (it is for Messenger, but it may help here as well):

If you're using Internet Explorer 6:-
You may also need to disable RESEARCH add-on in IE6 due to recent updates:
Disable Internet Explorer 6.0 add-ons:
1. From "Tools" menu, select "Manage Add-ons"
2. Click on the "Research" add-on if present, and then click Disable.
3. Close and relaunch the Internet Explorer internet browser.
