Hello,
I'm looking for some software help reguarding Yahoo fantasy sports. For a number of years now, I've been playing fantasy football on Yahoo with no problems what-so-ever. This season seems to be different. After you sign up for a league, you are given the option to test your system to make sure that everything is a go to enter the live draft at a designated time. No problems so far, I test my system, and after a 5-10 second wait, the test results come back "Successfull". Well, when the draft starts, and I follow the hyperlink to "Enter Live Draft", it never completley loads. I end up starring at a blank white screen forever. I've tried numberous times with all the same outcome. I went as far as to ask for help through Yahoo customer care. After getting the run-around for almost a week now, I'm about at my witts end..
I have performed numberous steps to try and correct this problem.

I have deleted cookies, Temp. Internet files, cache ect.
I re-downloaded and installed the latest Java RTE
I installed the new flash player
I turned off my windows firewall (for the time being of course)
I shut down Norton (Thinking it was their firewall giving me problems)
I downloaded the new IE 7
I downloaded Mozilla Firefox 3.0 (Thinking it was my IE giving me
problems)
And I even talked with some of my other league managers, whom which had
no problems accessing their draft.

PLEASE, any suggestions????
Thank You in advance.

Did you uninstall the old version of Java? The other thing you could try is to uninstall and reinstall the current version of Java. You may have re-downloaded Java but uninstalling first usually works better.

Frankp316, Thank you for your help.
I have uninstalled all of Java before installing the newer version which is? 6.6.. Correct? I'm starting to wonder if I even downloaded and installed the correct Java at all.. There are so many versions of Java and Yahoo Sports doesn't specify which version you need to run their program with. Any idea how I can fix this issue?
Thanks again!!!

I'm taking an educated guess by saying that my proxy configuration isn't correct.. The problem is, I'm not sure on how to tell.. Any ideas?
