DNS settings

If you have manually configured DNS settings make sure they have not changed eg your isp has changed their DNS servers. Also if your isp setting uses a proxy server at their end try diabling it in Explorer and see if that helps.

I would suggest clearing out your Temporary Internet Files first of all. Reset your security settings to the defaults in Internet Explorer and try again.

Still nada; disable your firewall (this can usually be done with a right click on its icon in the system tray) and try again.

You could also email your ISP and ask if there is any specific block Yahoo has on your ISP or your ISP has on Yahoo or if there's any connection issues between them that they know of.

Hope this helps,

Scott.

Orion started this thread Thanks everyone for your input. I have e-mailed AOL to ask them to check on any possible conflicts with Yahoo Finance UK. To repeat, the "workaround" is to use the AOL browser (ugh!).

Congratulations to Phil Mickelson on winning the Masters after a terrific contest.

I am still unable to access yahoo.co.uk but can access yahoo.com.

I am running windows 98 and explorer and have made no changes whatsoever to my computer or software.

I can access all of the other sites I visit without any problems.

Currently investigating ways of contacting yahoo and will come back as and when I get an answer.

Regards
