Yes, you can use IE OK. I use IE6 and have never had any problems with it. I don't use the BT/Yahoo dialer to connect with them though. I use turnpike connect. I will disconnect now and try the BT/Yahoo dialer and see if there is any problems, I will get back to you as soon as poss.

No problems with it at my end. I got straight in and signed on and I am using the BT/Yahoo browser now. The only thing I can suggest is to un-install the BT/Yahoo connect program and re-download it and set it up again and give it another go. My son had a similar sort of problem when he signed up with them and that is how he got round it. Also, make sure there is no AV program running when you download. Hope this helps.
