I'm currently out at a job and I'm totally out of ideas.
Its an XP Home computer with broadband internet, the problem is that while it won't show yahoo.com. It seems to go through the motions of loading the page but then just displays a blank screen, no error message, nothing at all. However it doesn't have this problem with any other website, just yahoo.com, any ideas?

Try this

If you get Yahoo you may have a DNS issue (HOSTS file overwritten)

Download the program hoster from here:

Run the program and then click the button to have it reset your Hosts file to original state.
