Re: [Y-Mail] Re: Yahoo mail problem
Hi silk here: Yes yahoo can and does do strange thigs as you have mentioned.
I as well have experienced this. Are you using firefox. It happens to me but not often on all three of my computers. what I do is click the x upper right hand corner.. return to desk top and the click firefox on my desk top.. begin anew. Or try IE or Opera. then after a while i go back and it works. If it is a constant problem remove your anti virus.. you can replace it from the trash can easily and see if this works.. it is a trial and error thing. another thing go to tools - options in both computers and make sure the settings in the one screwing up are the same as the one that works correctly. Also go to "my documents" and click on "folder options"check the settings are the same. Download opera nad see if this clears up the problem .. You can also delete fire fox and re- download it.. i never use IE. you"ll get it.
cheers... Silk in Amsterdam

Date: Monday, June 15, 2009, 4:07 PMI respectfully disagree. The failure to load I experienced in MicrosoftUpdate was exactly as described in Gil's post, and I had the same syptoms he had with Ymail--the only virus appears to be IE8, which I removed. IE7 ran MicrosoftUpdate and Ymail just fine once it was back in charge.

Then, last Tuesday, the MicrosoftUpdate site wouldn't load either. Same symptoms. After more fruitless trouble-shooting I uninstalled IE8, and now all is well.

After about 45 seconds, the "loading" icon disappears and I have not been taken to the inbox. I can right click inbox and open in a new tab (or browser) and I get into the inbox. I see my mail and click on one of them, but once again the "loading" icon appears on the screen and the mail does not open. Again, if I right click the email and choose open in a new tab (or browser) I can get into that piece of mail. I have to do this with each piece of mail which is a real PITA.
