    No, that didn't work. I can't even get into my yahoo email. Could it be something with my internet security?

    Well Internet Options
    Tools - Internet Options (Press "Tab" on your keyboard to show this menu)
    set all defaults
    Also Privacy - Advanced - Tick the square OK OK

    Neither one of those things worked. I can try to login to my yahoo, but then it just sits there and doesn't connect.

    Sorry also tools - Internet - Options - Advanced - Restore defaults
    Restart IE

    Also add yahoo to trusted zone

    Did you try System Restore ?

    I'd go as far as to reload IE (ie uninstall - reinstall)

    Do other computers connect to the site ok after having cookies cleared as it could be yahoo servers that are down.

    OK. I can get into Yahoo. But, when I login to me email, it starts to connect and then gets stuck.
    http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/dc/lau..._143665_AJezo0IAABWDRyUOWgl0+UKq8Ug&box=Inbox

    At fanball.com, I go into my league, and then click on live scoring. Another screen pops up with current scores. Now when I click on it, nothing happens. I can log in, set up my line-up, and everything else. I tried to check scoring with another computer, and it worked. It's almost like it won't open up another window for it.

    I cannot understand however how a temp file has caused this issue. Are you sure all web plugins, flash, shockwave, java...etc are ok? I did however get a certificate prompt so being sure *.yahoo.com is entered into the safe sites zone may help.

    Yeah I am confused. I don't know what he could have done. It was working fine before he deleted whatever he deleted. I can login to both fanball and yahoo. When I try to get scoring, nothing. In Yahoo, I am logged in, but when I try to get mail, it attempts but doesn't get anywhere. They are both trusted sites. Logged out and back in again. Still not working. Unistalled IE and reinstalled. As far as I can tell, Java, Shockwave and everything else seems to be working.

    By the way you don't have firewall enabled blocking you do you ?

    If not try the next options

    You will need to create a new user in either yahoo or fanball or both.

    Make the user name blablablabla and then some strange number (or more letters)

    Confirm you can send receive email Ok

    Confirm you can read online scores at fanball

    (maybe keep these extra usernames just in case.

    Logout and log back in with your original name.

    ?

    Set up a new yahoo account. I still wasn't able to get to the email that way. I can get into my hotmail account without any problems.
