The "new" (2011) Yahoo Mail keeps opening new ad infinitim until I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL to force close my browser. It is aggravating to say the least and I am considering never using Yahoo Mail again even though I've had my account for over 10 years. This only happens with Yahoo Mail, not any other website. The browswer I'm running is IE8 - I've never had this problem before. Does anybody know what could be going on?

Thank you.

Try deleting Yahoo and going back to the older one? I had a similar problem and fixed it that way.

Depending on which browser you're using, you could install AdBlock Plus and Easylist filterset and be done with almost all ads. It's available for Firefox and I believe Google Chrome (or SRWare Iron) browsers. SRWare Iron is Google Chrome without the "spyware".,

I was actually using Firefox, as I refuse to use IE of any version, but that will not stop the Problem, It seems like a giltch in the latest version of Yahoo? Uninstalling the new one and installing the old one, then refusing Toolbars and Updates and any other crap, afterwards going into "Add and Remove" and uninstalling any thing connected to Yahoo, except Yahoo Nessenger worked fine for me, it was back to normal.

I discovered that Yahoo Mail causes new browser tabs to open only when I close IE while it is on the Yahoo Mail website. So now I switch to another website before closing the browswer to avoid the problem. Very strange.

Thanks for the responses.
