Hi. I can't sign into my email at yahoo, only on this computer. The yahoo sign in area is flashing. Some one suggested that a download had affected it, but I havent downloaded anything in weeks. I have used ad-aware and spybot to scan after shuting down and bring back up its still there. I dont know where to look, or what to do to get rid of this. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thank you for the help. Wanda

Hello wfsimons

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSypware Free for Home Users.
Download and scan with Dr.Web CureIt. Follow the instructions here for performing a scan.

Then perform this online Virus scan: Trend Micro Housecall <- Use "Autoclean" and manually delete what it can't clean.
