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

Is there a commonality among those that cannot access through explorer? My isp is aol version 8 not the latest version 9.

Hi again, yes temp internet folder was the first thing to go, along with any cache. all ie updates and defaults we're tried and yet nothing, tho because I'm not alone here I'm guessing there has to be a fault between aol/yahoo or yahoo/aol lol, yes i can access it thru the aol browser...no i don't want to as the system doesnt' work quite as i'd like it to.

I'm on win98 se, aol 9 (but have re-tried it on 8 still the same prob),
latest version of ie with the patch explaining if you have these probs to install? errrm I've worked with pc's and networks for over 11 years now and this is a first for me?

I also tried to contact yahoo without success so far but I'm still trying and will post if I have any joy, good luck people.

Masters was great, so very gripping, I'm so glad he won! well done.
