Unhappy Why do I get Error Message 403. Sorry, Forbidden.You don't have permission to access
Hi My friends

Was hoping someone can tell me what the heck happened and how to fix this stupid issue I keep getting ? Whenever I try to sign in to yahoo using IE 7 I suddenly get this error message and cannot sign in anymore ?...............but if I use Firefox everything works out fine ! So is there a setting that got changed in IE ?

Thank You Kindly,

It will be to do with the security in Internet explorer:

are cookies enabled?
What level of protection do you have in tools, internet settings?
Is the site blocked?

Is this your computer, or a shared computer (e.g school, college, library etc)?

Hi Broni

Yes, as I sign on with IE7 my listed homepage comes up with this error but if I close it out & come into IE a 2nd time it goes through okay.......then if I try at anytime using IE to go into Yahoo to sign in it denies me with the "forbidden errror message" ?
If I use Firefox I get no problems but I do like my IE also...hope you can help me with this and Thank You for your responding to my plight.

Best to You........

What happens when you set your home page to something else (or blank), open IE, and then try to access yahoo?

Set your security level to medium, and remove any Yahoo entries from restricted zone.

So then I close out IE and reopen IE again and it will then go to the set homepage...............but no matter what I do through IE I still cant get the yahoo mail or any yahoo log in page to come up. (only this error mess comes up instead)

So, you're getting that error message at initial IE opening, AND at Yahoo sign in?

Most people have it set to "medium".

Hi Broni !

Again, thank you for helping me !

(So, you're getting that error message at initial IE opening, AND at Yahoo sign in?}
.............Exactly correct !!!

(Most people have it set to "medium".).........I did this as you asked.

(Can you copy, and paste couple of most weird looking ?)
........as these are those :
yahoo.panet.org
yahoo.downloadznow.net
wwwyahoo.downloadznow.net

*Broni, these seem to be the only ones I relate to as a yahoo site that I see in there other than some hidden types that may be Ip addresses ?

Thank You Again my friend !!!

All those three sites have nothing to do with Yahoo, so they should stay in restricted zone.

Now after lowering your security level, and setting your home page to blank:
1. Are you still getting "403" error at INITIAL IE opening?
2. Still can't sign on Yahoo?

Still cannot get into yahoo's log in page to sign on through IE though ? ....(at yahoo sign in I get this 403 forbidden crap yet.)

....... I truly appreciate your helping me, thank you so much.
