Thanks, That was a partial help. I'm still getting the grayed out boxes on
the my.yahoo page and I have submitted comments to them on their "Reporting
My Yahoo! Module Technical issues / Bugs " page area.
Apparently some of the issue was with a dial up modem compression program
(named Propel). I clear temporary files daily from internet explorer. Propel
also uses temporary internet files for compression purposes and they
discourage you from clearing them (since it is part of their speed up process
I suppose). However, when I cleared them, the weather.com (previously grayed
out box) info now appears correctly. However, the my.yahoo page is still has
the grayed out boxes as originally described. Hopefully, yahoo engineers may
look at what I submitted and could suggest the rest of the fix.
