Yahoo Problems

Postby coachdino » Fri Apr 15, 2005 2:09 am

I am having big problems with pop-ups when I check out my yahoo sights. I only seem to have these problems when I check out my baseball leagues. Any body else having these problems? :-P

Not me. No pop ups at all from Yahoo other than the occasional one that asks if I want to take one of their surveys. :-?
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

I've never had a pop up on yahoo. It's probably spyware on your computer.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

adaware is good
I think it's at lavasoft.com if not just google it.
Spybot is good. Both are freeware.

Sure. What programs do you currently have for spyware and anti-viruses?? If you don't have any A/V software, I would recommend that. As for spyware, I recommend at least using Adaware and SpywareBlaster. The latter is good at keeping some of the infections out in the first place. I also have a proggy that fixes corrupt keys in your registry that this spyware seems to be attracted to.

The MS beta didn't work great for me but a lot of people like it. It caused a few problems for me but nothing major.

Also, don't use Internet Explorer. I use Avant Browser (free download) and it crushes all popups including the one at this site. :)
