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.

Way

It does appear that it is an aol/yahoo problem.

I am trying to contact aol and will report back as and when I get anywhere.

Thankyou Bracke and everyone lol, yes ok "pants" or something to that effect would have been more suitable, ok I "hate" using the aol browser lmao.. it's so...hmmmmm "80's" ?

Thanks for the help everyone, usually when something like this happens, ive been playing or updating or something interesting but not this time, switched off one night it was fine, the next morning nada, zip, zilch, zero, nothing, lol,

Have a good day everyone and thanks again for any input

Regards Way

I have 'phoned the aol helpline 0800 376 5432 and was informed that they are not aware of any problem . I suggest that all of you who are having a problem contact them, the more calls aol get the greater the chance that they will do something about it.

Regards

I've also been having problems since last week trying to access Yahoo Uk, the US site is fine.

I would have thought the problem is strictly Yahoo and not AOL if we can access Yahoo UK through the AOL browser (which is pants) and not the IE one. Though I don't know how to contact Yahoo UK.

Just been on to AOL and made a similar report as bracke. Anyone with this prob needs to do the same as they told me the technicians are looking into it - that may be just a fob off so the more people that report it the better, it cant go un-noticed then. I contacted them via online tech chat, the more avenues that are used the better too.
