Starting just a few days ago, I have been unable to successfully get into certain sites and certain programs don't seem to be running in any browser that I attempt to use. I generally use Firefox, but I have attempted to use both Chrome and IE. When I attempt to log into my Yahoo Mail account, I receive the following message:
Ooops. Yahoo! Mail can't load
Loading Yahoo! Mail failed due to a client side Galaxy error
You might try going into your firewall settings, and disabling "Ad blocking". If that doesn't work, please contact customer care.
* Try clearing your browser cache
* Try clearing your browser cookies
* Taking too long? More info
* If you received an ActiveX warning, please enable ActiveX
* Check your email in Yahoo! Mail Classic
* Switch back to Yahoo! Mail Classic
by opting out of Yahoo! Mail
* Click here to try again
I am able to view my mailbox through the Classic view, but I am unable to see the contents of the email messages from there.
In addition to this, I am also unable to access Facebook. When I log in, I see the heading area at the top but every below is blank. I am also unable to log out, as I am taken to the account settings page every time that I attempt to click on the Account dropdown menu to log out.
I am also unable to run Flash through my browser windows. When an embedded Flash video appears on a page, I either receive a message saying that Flash is not installed (which it is) or the space where the video should play remains blank. When I have attempted to go to Flash's site to try and download the latest version (which I already have installed) I am unable to download anything. It looks like there is some process going on in my browser and then it stops without a download being initiated. The same downloading problem has occurred on other sites where I have attempted to download a program.
I would appreciate any help or direction with this that anyone can give me. I am at a complete loss about what happened or what is going on now. I have not updated anything during the time frame from when this issue began. I turned off my computer one night before I went to bed (which I usually don't do) and the next morning when I turned it on, this was going on.
Thanks a lot,
