    Issue #
    1. Only one of many yahoo! ID's I have doesn't display correctly (it's like many options are missing and the email body text displays into the left colored margin. Nor does my folder list appear any more. Only one email ID is affected whereas all my others are fine.
    2. Words on every page of this yahoo! ID's email are links. When mouse is held over linked word, toolbar note appears: "sponsored link".

    I've run hijack, adaware, and spybot but I think I must not have done it in the right sequence since all I did was erase my cookies.

    EDIT: AAACK! Just noticed some words on this site, in thread titles, are also sponsored links! (where's the bugeye icon?!)

    So far nothing more nefarious has surfaced but I definitely want to clean up.

    Thanks for your help. :D
