In Yahoo groups, I can't access adult groups in the UK or USA, although a small number in other countries appear under REGIONAL when I go through the browse groups menus. In general, the headings appear, but not the groups. I _definitely_ have the safesearch under general search options set to "off, do no filter adult content" and I cannot find any similar group-specific safe-search option. I am a member of a couple of adult groups, and these appear on my "my groups" page and I can access them OK. But if I seach for adult groups, the headings appear, but no actual groups. I am puzzled and would wecome any suggestions!
Many thanks

easy thing to try , control panel>add remove programs>remove yahoo messenger. go to yahoo site,
are you using version 7.0 or 7.5 (access this by selecting help>about) ?
download the newest version (not ever a beta) and re-install. se if this helps first.
generally, from what i assume your surfing habits would be like, sites from which i (again assume) you browse contain a ot of spyware and adware and have been known to corrupt, files,programs,reg keys. please try this first. and i suggest running an "adware, spybot" scan for malicious softare detection. you can download these from here----- www.download.com

Make sure your Yahoo ID contains a legal age and location information.
Foreign groups are better accessed through the respective localisation of Yahoo.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
