When I sign into yahoo mail it starts to open but freezes up. Bottom task bar shows "opening page about: blank"
I have deleted cookies, history, files etc.... ran mbam, avg, adaware, spybot, superantispyware......
If I ask someone on a different computer to sign into yahoo mail with my acct and password, they get right in. Anyone signing into yahoo mail from this computer on their acct has no problem.
Obviously it's this computer. I have 2 other accts........hotmail and gmail....no issues.
Any ideas would be appreciated....

Thanks in advance..
John

Have you checked that your HOSTS file is not corrupt?

Found the host file under C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc but have no idea how to determine if it's corrupt....
