Greetings again. I am fresh off of a solved e-mail problem but there is something kicking up again. My recent fix included uninstalling all of my programs and updates. (Note: some of the updates didn't uninstall but they proved irrelevant.) Anyhow, I have been putting installing programs back and being very careful in the process. This afternoon (7/3/13), I received about five e-mails and opened all with no problem. Then I got a pop-up telling me that I have updates ready to install and I believe there were about eight of them. Four of them were noted as "important" from Microsoft. Some concerned Framework 4 Client and most of the others were security updates (I have Microsoft Security Essentials) so I installed the "important" ones. After that, I shut down and we left the house for about two hours. When I came back, I started the computer back up primarily to see if the upgrades had caused any problems and they did. One of the e-mails I got this afternoon and opened successfully was from a relative. He sent me another one which I couldn't open so I went back and uninstalled all of the updates for today (7/3) after which I went back to my e-mails and opened the second e-mail from my relative with no problem. I understand that Yahoo is having e-mail issues too. So where is my problem? with Microsoft? or Yahoo?

Hi -

There seems to be an issue with Yahoo mail recently, as I need to retype my password every time.

It was "upgraded" and since then I have had a few issues -


I would be very cautious opening email attachments even if you know the sender at this time.

Also Reset your password again just to be sure -


Thanks -
