Try clearing out all temp internet files and cookies and reboot; then try again.

Use CrapCleaner from click here to clear it up on a regular basis.

Its not that!

I have a problem for some weeks getting garbled page on yahoo. Cleanups do nothing.

My wife, who has a yahoo email as well, was OK, until a couple of days ago, when the same thing happened. Also has happened to my son.

Only cure is to download another browser such as Opera 7 or Firefox. must be a fault at Yahoo's end, as they have been upgrading their site.

Anyone else got any ideas?

I use IE6 / Firefox 1.0 / Mozilla 1.7 and there is no problem with any of them and Yahoo.

I have ad blocking in place which may help and have both and addresses.

Thats what used to happen to me. I could open up my wife's Yahoo email, but mine was garbled.

Now hers is as well.

Must be yahoo gradulally upgrading everything. Have tried contacting yahoo, but no luck so far.

No one come up with any solutions?
I am still trying to find out how I can get hold of yahoo, rather than just reporting spam.

anyone know how to contact Yahoo?

I've been having email grief with yahoo, too ... I wonder if it's their end. For me, Outlook 2003 is reporting errors accessing the pop3/smtp servers. Mind you, I also have a Mac and it's fine with Entourage ... I wonder if something is going on with yahoo.

kjride, i'm at the same dead end trying to contact yahoo...its a nightmare. i did change to a couple of different browsers - advanced, firefox and opera which was the only one to work but it has not been very satisfactory as yet,,i will try it again when i have more time. i can't understand how i can access another yahoo account on my pc with the current browse - avant.
any help is welcome.
