Hello everyone,


Every time I go to Yahoo.com and try to go to my email, Yahoo Fantasy Sports, or do something else on Yahoo.com My computer freezes up and My web browser freezes up for about a minute or 2!  No matter what web browser I am using it still happens and no matter what Yahoo email account I use it still happens!!  I am getting sick and tired of it!! I tried Clearing Web browser Cache, Computer Cache, Clearing Cookies, Changing/Using different Web Browsers, and restarting my computer, But it still happens!!  I am at a loss as to why this is happening and to how to prevent this from happening!! 


Does anyone know why this is happening and how to keep this from happening?  


I looked on Yahoo about it but could not find anything except a reference about having too many contacts and something similar happening but only when Yahoo starts up or loads up. But that is not the problem I am having.  Yahoo loads up normally, then when I go to go to view my emails, go to enter Yahoo Fantasy Sports, or any other yahoo page except the main Yahoo page, My computer freezes up and the Web Browser freezes up along with any other program that is operating at the time!! 


I update all my programs every few days and defrag my hard drive once a month, so that should not be the cause of the problem!  


All the help will be appreciated! Thanks

After having had a Yahoo account for years I finally cut ties with them.  They were always hassling me about something, oftten times I'd get the message that my Display Settings needed to be something else. They got to be more trouble than they were worth, always hassling me about changing to the NEW EMAIL when their NEW EMAIL sucked, I just wanted to be left alone.


No other site I went to bugged me about my Display Settings.  Why would I change my Display to suit them and probably thereby screw up my settings for everyone else but them?   if it ain't broke don't fix it.


Used to be you could get hold of someone there to email if you had a question but those days are gone.


So anyway - I really tried to hang on with them because I have one Yahoo Group I can't go to anymore - I have been free of them for long enough that finally some of the things that annoyed me about them are fading into history, I can't remember exactly what, i just know they were getting on my last nerve.


For a while they would randomly send a message that due to high activity they were SORRY but I couldn't send anything - basically was sent to Adult Timeout I guess.   So I'm in the middle of emailing a group of people working on a project with me and then BAM just like that Its a no-go.
