    I can get to excite, google and maybe others...but when I try to log on to yahoo.com it locks the computer up totally, so I have to hard shut down and reboot.
    It use to work just fine...have tried everything but reloading windows...which is not an option...any hints?

    Hiya and welcome

    First off, what version of IE are you using? You could try a repair:

    Control panel | AddRemove. Doubleclick Microsoft Internet Explorer. Choose Repair, apply and restart.

    Also, have you emptied your Tempory Internet Files lately?

    Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, DON'T delete offline content.
