Something doesn't seem right - 127.0.0.1 is a special IP address that loops back to your own PC. I would of thought that Yahoo messenger would try to connect to a Yahoo server which would have a different IP address.
Has your PC been thoroughtly checked for viruses, trojans and malware?
When this sort of thing has happened on PCs, I have found them to have been Hijacked by some form of Malware. Best to get your PC checked out first and then reload Yahoo messenger software and see if problem resolved.

Look in Internet Explorer>Tools menu>Internet Options>Connection tab>LAN button and take the ticks out of the two Proxy related boxes, then put a tick in the "Automatically detect settings" box.

Click Apply and OK then restart IE - you may be online properly and Yahoo Messenger might also work.

Even better is to not select (untick) all three proxy choices. :)

No, Saga Lout, I'm just saying to not "put a tick in the "Automatically detect settings" box." That almost always works fine, but why give the system even a small chance to make a mistake if you know you are not using a proxy.

I'm with you now. Agreed it's safer but in the UK we were having problems with several ISPs - notably AOL - if the tick wasn't present. However, that was then and it's probably no longer relevant - just another habit to break.

I will try the Internet explorer fix then do a hijack this scan to find any malware that got missed by my spyware blockers

internet explorer fix seemed to work, had to fix it in firefox too though.
