Well...I fixed the problem...thanks to those who took the time to at least take a look at my post...

Much appreciated...although I hope never to return!

Here is the situation:

System: Windows XP Personal

I use Firefox, my wife uses Internet Explorer, we each have our own logins for Windows XP.

Beginning this last weekend, we have been unable to sign into our yahoo, hotmail, bank accounts or even netflix (NETFLIX!!!). Pretty much anything that has a forum login (however I have been able to sign up for this one fine). This happened at the same time to both XP accounts, and affects both IE and Firefox in both.

Firefox message: "Unable to connect....Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at login.yahoo.com

IE Message: "The page cannot be displayed"

My Ad Aware scan is clean. Below is my log from Highjack this (which I just downloaded).

I appreciate any help anyone can offer.....thanks!
