Hi! I'm having login problems when I initially try to boot up my homepage (Yahoo!). I hadn't had this sort of difficulty until recently (within the last three weeks). Before that, I was usually able to login without any trouble in the space of a few seconds (I have high-speed Internet service); since my troubles began, it can take up to two or three minutes to perform an initial login. I have the same problems when I try to pull up more than one Yahoo! screen; delayed login times usually accompanied by a blank screen (although the Yahoo! toolbar overhead usually comes up rapidly enough). On those instances when the Yahoo! page does boot up, it still takes a minute or two to be able to sign in.

This evening, following the advice of a friend who felt the difficulties might be due to some sort of Trojan horse or worm, I downloaded Trend HijackThis from C-Net. I did a systems analysis which resulted in a lengthy list of anomalies. Following onscreen advice, I decided to submit that list to this forum. However, I need to know how to transmit that list to other members; I also need advice on what to fix and what to leave alone. Would someone please help me?
