earlier i posted a problem re black toolbar which has now resolved. prior to the problem last night occurring i was getting first microsoft messages about expired certificate etc and java would block suspect pages, today i cant access games in yahoo without a java warning box (no message) if i delete the box then yahoo opens but still does not allow entry into games rooms. any ideas XP PRO ie8 etc

I am a Yahoo! Games (Canasta) player for 8 years?

I have had problems on various upgrades and reinstalls.

Often turns out to be Java. Sometimes I had to re-install an old JVM (Java Virtual Machine).

Tonight, funnily enough, I had my first game in 6 months.

Took a couple of attempts and can't remember what I did.
Except practice on an empty room.
Can you type in security words, create table?
See chat?

Google?Yahoo...lot's of people have problems...and of course you know the back doors when rooms are full?

it is java associated, i can type in password to a room and that is as far as it gets. it just hangs saying done but no room opens

further to this i have run a complete avg scan (it found 3 trojans) and deleted them MBAM came up clear as did superantispyware etc all i get when trying to access yahoo games is a microsoft warning abou not allowing page cos of malicious scripts? any help much appreciated
