For some reason Yahoo is asking for my password EVERY time I try to check my e-mail.
I have it set up to only ask for the password every 8 hours, and that was working just fine until a couple of days ago. Now I'm asked for the password every time, even if I log-in every 5 minutes??

I cleared all the temp. files and cookies, ran the usual virus and spyware applications and cleaned out the registry and defragged. Still, I'm getting the password prompt.
I haven't added another Yahoo account, we only have this one. Nor have we added any other e-mail accounts the past week. I can't think of anything that would have caused this to start up.

I found a temporary solution that I'm surprised works:

If I use "My Yahoo" to open my e-mail I am never asked for the password. I can click an e-mail letter to read and it opens the e-mail page right up. Go figure??
