1. Try clearing the DNS Cache
Start> Run> cmd [enter]
Then clear the Temporary Internet Files again, clear the History and
2. Is the Internet Shortcut for yahoo.com damaged? Does typing in
make a difference?
3. Check the HOSTS file. Is yahoo in the HOSTS file?
Make sure that Windows is showing hidden files and is
not hiding file extensions for known file types then check for a HOSTS file
at [C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc] Open the HOSTS file with notepad. If
there are entries you wish to disable, you can put the pound sign (#) in
front an entry to disable it. Then File> Save. Or you can rename the HOSTS
file to HOSTS.OLD to disable it.
More on the HOSTS file at http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm
Hope this helps,
