Today I am unable to see my mail or Spam when I click on Mail in MyYahoo!, each time I click on Spam or any other mail folder I get a blank window with Casino.com in the top left hand corner of the window where the contents of the Spam folder should be, and even if I click on the 'click here' button all I get is their webpage, I have not been able to find a way around this.
I am unable to find a help subject or a contact for Yahoo so that I can ask what has happened.
I can still get my mail via Thunderbird, but I am not able to look at the spam folder in the Yahoo mail site to check if any genuine mail has been diverted.
Thank you both for you help, I ran Spybot but it did not find a problem, so I tried Ad-Aware and this showed quite a few cookie and I removed these and all is now okay. I also have Ashampoo SpywareGuard 2 running but something still got through!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi p;3 I have a similar problem again today, this time I can see the mail folders and the list of emails but then the screen goes blanc and nothing else happens. If I then use the back arrow I see the list gain for a few seconds. I am running Ad-aware now whilst I am writing this. You asked what anti-virus I have, it is AVG 8.5.364 free. I will run a virus check later, but yesterday I thought I had over come the problem. I can get my emails via Thunderbird, but of course I am unable to check the Spam folder just in case some thing has been diverted which should not have been.
It is never a good idea to run scan programs while you are on line unless of course they are on- line scanner progams !!When did you last update your AVG8.5 and run a full computer scan with it ? It cannot harm also if you could run a full computer scan with Superantispyware off line !!click here
'This is a very annoying problem. It appears that one of Yahoo's advertisers has installed a script that redirects you from your mail inbox and off to an advert for this casino site, preventing you from accessing your emails'
try installing the Hosts file ; it gets rid of(actually blocks) most ads on most sites click here
follow the instructions applicable for your Windows version for the place to save it ; works wonders !!
