Solved: Wheres My Yahoo?

Q: Solved: Wheres My Yahoo?

MyYahoo Home page has disappeared. I've re-signed in, I hit all the MyYahoo links, double checked that it was still set on my home page and still nothing, just a blank screen. No error, no nothing. All my other web pages are fine. Is this a yahoo problem? Any one else besides me having this problem?

A: Solved: Wheres My Yahoo?

There could be a server problem at Yahoo; you're not the only one with this problem.

My older second reserve laptop - Toshiba Satellite A30-921, came with a 40gb hd and 512mb ram with Winxp (approx 5 years old)
Decided to try and get it back to life and give it a second chance, as in the past it kept rebooting every 10 minutes, and was so slow when it was working.
Used the product recovery disks for a fresh new start, removed one of the 256mb memory modules and replaced it with 1gb, so now up to 1.2 gb ram.Its even managed to install Windows SP3 without any hitches.
Only need to use it for email/ surfing at present, but would like to download stuff in the future.
Have installed Norton 360 as I have this on my other laptop with a 3 user licence.

Up to yet, no problems BUT, can you answer me this:


I have not installed any Office suite/word/works/excel etc, I have not downloaded any pictures, music,documents
Space being used for "Documents/shared docs"= 5mb (sample stuff)
Space used on currently installed programs (taken from control panel) = 312mb

Whats eating up all my space, and what kind of % of used space should determine whether to upgrade the hd in the future ?

hi . i recently bought this new mother board by Asus, P5RD1-V. the problem is that when i try to install windows xp on my SATA HD, after the initial stage during which the setup copies all the drivers and then gives that option " to install windows XP press enter" plus one or two other options, when i press enter i get this massage that says " setup didnt find any hard drives installed on your system. check to see if any HD is installed .... " and then it goes on to say things like check your drive configuration or the drive health and things like that. all this when at the the bootup it does show the hard drive connected at SATA port 1. !! ? i run seagate diagnostic tool on it and it showes the drive as perfectly healthy. i dont know why is it doing it. the hard disk is spanking brand new. the same goes for the 120GB WD SATA. the interesting thing it has no issue with the good old IDE HD's. i connected my old maxtor IDE hard drive and the setup ran as smooth as it can get. i dont know why setup isent detecting the SATA HD. is it the board or is it somthing else. any ideas !

hello all;
heres a good one for the gurus.
i am running an hp compaq dc5850 sff. i have two hdd. one with all my America's Army stuff on it. on one i have the deploy client and game but nothing else that pertains to AA2.
so i decide to start to set up AA2 on the vista hdd as it is on xp hdd, the first thing i do is go to my maps website of choice and start to download the user created maps i like. everything looks good, i choose the correct directory and file and even hit the open folder button to make sure the map is in the right place and it is.
now the good part, i close everything up and go back to the map to make sure it will start and play correctly and it is not there, i search for it from the search window at start and search tells me the closet it could find was the same map but on the E drive, which is where the xp hdd is when i boot vista.
any ideas?

Im running Outlook 2002 on 5 different computers via a server running Microsoft Exchange Network. When I assigned delegate acces to four of them, there was no fight. However, one of them will not let me assign delegate access no matter what I do. I have tried using the add-in manager to set up the delegate option, but it doesnt do anything. I cannot see the delegates tab in options, nor can I see it in the inbox options. I am trying to assign delegate access for read access to the inbox, and read,edit,modify access to the calendar. Anyone have any bright ideas? Cause im tapped out. Thanks

A:Wheres the Delegates?

If you right-click the inbox (or calendar) and go to Properties, do you see a Permissions tab? You should be able to grant permissions from there. It works much the same as the delegates tab, but when you grant people permissions in delegates, it also gives them the ability to "send on behalf of" the user, which may or may not be what you want. Let us know whether the permissions tab is visible and whether that's helpful, or not what you're looking for.

can someone help? I just ran restore from a backup on an external harddrive, it took over 5 hrs, then finished. But where is all my 'restored' data?? I cant find it....

if this is too vague tell me and i will try to explain further but its pretty straight forward....

is there something more i must do?

A:wheres my restored data?

If the restore ran properly, the restored files and folders should be in the same places they were when you did the backup. It sounds like either there was a problem with the backup or there is a problem with the restore. Let's make sure you're doing things correctly before assuming there is some problem with the system or the hardware or the backup file - which we will address later if this doesn't help. The following should help:

Here's an article on the restore procedure: just to make sure you're doing it right. It's a selective restore of a full or selective backup (not a complete restore of a complete backup) - but since you did a full backup it matches your process closer than a complete restore would.

Here's another excellent tutorial on the Restore process: Restore Backup Files.

Here's an article on how to use Advanced Restore (when normal restore doesn't work):

I typed "tablet wallpaper" into google images. It says

"About 25,800,000 results"

I keep clicking "Show more results" until I get to "page" 50 and it ends with a picture that says "I heart ipad".

Then thats it. No button to load more results. Google said 25,800,000 results. That certainly wasn't 25,800,000 results.

A:Wheres the REST of googles results ?

I did a search using your exact phrase and my results were: About 47,100,000 results (0.15 seconds)A quick google search for a definition of those results netted: Statistics Bar: Describes your search, includes the number of results on the current results page and an estimate of the total number of results, as well as the time your search took. For the sake of efficiency, Google estimates the number of results; it would take considerably longer to compute the exact number. This estimate is unreliable.Bold is mine.From the preceding I extrapolate that the guesstimation number is a product of Google's algorithm for every possibility of those two words and how they would be used as well as them being used combined. As well as possibly wall and paper individually . To get every single one of those guesstimated results you would likely need to refine your search parameters repeatedly. For example Samsung 'tablet wallpaper' then ipad 'tablet wallpaper' so on and so on. Not to mention probably include every known language as well. This is my theory.Also there was this bit of information about search results:Ordered by relevance to your query, with the result that Google considers the most relevant listed first. Consequently you are likely to find what you're seeking quickly by looking at the results in the order in which they appear. Google assesses relevance by considering over a hundred factors, including how many other pages link to the page, the positions... Read more

Today I fired up the new computer for the first time, ran the Easy Transfer program , pointed to the CDRW disc and the program formated as expected.
when the program was completed and files were apparently transfered and the programs status window closed. and that was it, nothing more.....
I unhid my system files and and searched everywhere with no resolve (sighs..) would one of you fine folks please help me locate my transfered files as the are very important to me.
Thank you again.. I'll check back often

A:Used Windows Easy Transfer but now wheres my files?

In the start menu go to Accessories -> System Tools -> Windows Easy Transfer Reports and open it up.  The Transfer Report will show what has been transferred.  If you click Documents it should show you exactly where it's placed your document files and what they were.

In this picture, you can see a settings button for the Loudness Equalization enhancement. When I go to the enhancement tab, there is no settings option (or "Preview" or "Restore Defaults"). Why is this? I wanted to see what the "Release time" option does, and I can't get to it.

Also, while I'm here, I was wondering if there was a way I could "tweak" loudness equalization. I want to make low/quiet sounds louder, but I don't want to reduce the volume of louder sounds. Is this possible? I've been googling for ~2hrs and I came across the Release time setting, and I was gonna mess with it, but it's missing.


A:Loudness Equalization - Wheres the settings button??

No settings available... unfortunately!

It looks like MS has licensed some of the "Waves" DSP technology, pretty high end software... part of the L-series Maximizer. It's a combination Limiter/Compressor and I think they figured the general public wouldn't know how to set it up. Too bad, it could use a litttle tweaking, the attack is a little slow.

I have a pc with win vista on hdd 0 and win 7 on hdd 1 both are a SATA connected disk drives ,the system boots up on the win 7 choice of o/s but not with the windows vista selection , when the system has booted in win 7 I can hear hdd 0 restarting and spinning up so I'm thinking that theres either a data parity error or a hardware issue with the disk drive ,what I would like to do is convert the pc to just run on windows 7 because I dont really use the windows vista o/s much , if its a hardware fault I would like to replace the hard drive but only have a single o/s on the system , I would like to know where the BCD file is kept and also how to go about this task of going from a dual boot to single boot system with just the 1 o/s.
any help would be appreciated

A:make a dual boot pc into a single boot pc ,wheres the bcd stored?

The Vista bootloader and the Win 7 bootloader are the same.

I can't answer your question but my guess would be that the boot files on are on the Win 7 hard drive, if it's the latter install.

I'd probably just install EasyBCD on the Win 7 drive...and then see if it automatically recognizes the Vista install. If not, then manually add the Vista install to EasyBCD, making Win 7 the default. That should (IMO) ensure that Win 7 remains bootable. Then just format/remove the Vista drive.

A simple way to find to temporarily detach the Vista drive...and see if Win 7 boots. If it does, the files are on the Win 7 drive .

Thank you in advance

A:My Yahoo home page and related yahoo pages won't display ads

Just Yahoo? If so it is probably their problem. They have lots of them. It may resolve or may not. That's the beauty of Yahoo.

If you see it on other sites then it is something with your system. Maybe a program you have is blocking ads from displaying. I know I had an issue with SpywareBlaster doing that.

Hi Folks,

I have had a recurring issue with my Windows 7 computer redirecting Google, Yahoo, and sometimes Facebook to a Yahoo Developer page (or a generic error page on iPhones and iPads on the network). Once it starts, it sometimes stops on its own after a couple minutes, sometimes it requires a power cycle of all networked devices (modem, router, a printer, 2 iPhones, and iPad and my PC).

I've had Norton continuously since purchasing the computer, run anti-malware bytes and SuperAntispyware, and none of them have been able to locate an issue.

I even tried re-installing Windows 7, but I think perhaps because I have an upgrade disk rather than the original I didn't get a full purge and the problem continued before I returned any backed up files onto it..

I also removed my PC from the network for about a month and never experienced the problem with my other devices. I'm fairly positive it's the PC, but I can't figure out the issue and am hoping someone here can help.

I've been experiencing an annoying issue when navigating through web browsers such as yahoo, google, etc. When using the search engines, I'm often re-directed to some random site that looks like it's either mimicking a search engine or selling something. If I hit the 'back' button enough and re-click on the search item a 2nd time, I'll usually get the page I originally wanted. However, this happens on every search I perform and occurs every time without fail.

Another issue that may be related occurs when in Yahoo!'s email service. I'm often redirected when navitgating in-and-out of email messages. I fear my computer is being used in a malicious way and my security, compromised. None of the anti-virus or spyware tools on my computer have caputerd or identified a problem (yet I KNOW one exists here).

Here is where I will start. My apologies, this might be long winded.
I was having problems with browsing (posted this prior) and wasn't getting anywhere with attempting to adjust browser settings. I was getting blocked going regular places. So... after getting very aggravated, I accessed Symantec's online chat help w/ an analyst. During this time, the analyst remotely accessed my computer on two occassions, ultimately finding out that the problem was not with the Norton 360 but was with IE (v.7). We were having problems with connectivity. He said his system said I was disconnected yet he was still in my system. He started a notepad doc to chat with me, saying that we were locking up and I should Google the verbage I was receiving during the browsing blocks I was receiving. As I was typing a response saying I have done that, we were disconnected. Since I knew what I had originally found, I disconnected completely and left it for today since more than 2-3 hours have now passed. Today, I cannot access my email. I receive an HTTP 405 error.

I belong to one Yahoo Group and have my email for that group set up for "individual emails" for all group messages. I receive all messages daily from all other group members except one member. Can't figure out why I don't get his messages (makes no difference if it is text only messages or messages with pics attached). The only way I know this particular member has posted to the group is when other members have their group email settings set up to automatically affix all/part of posts at the bottom of their replies to same. As you see by my signature, I use Firefox 1.5.09 as my default browser. My other realtime running programs also listed there, but I don't think they could be a factor. Not sure whether Firefox is a factor with the blocking. I have asked this member to post a test message today and I am accessing the net exclusively via IE6 today to see if his test message comes through or not. Will report back my findings on that score. BTW, I do not use an email client. I read all my mail directly off the Yahoo Mail website. Only thought I've had, is once or twice my mail has "bounced" because my inbox was full. But my inbox rarely gets full. And this problem seems to be more persistent than just a few occasions. Anyone have any additional thoughts on what could be causing my dilemma?

A:Yahoo Web-based Email/yahoo Groups Problem

Don't know if it is the problem, but just realized I normally keep my mail options set to "automatically delete" bulk mail messages. Maybe somehow this group member's messages are being "perceived" as spam and Yahoo's spam filter is blocking his posts. I've gone into my settings just now and told it to hold those messages a week for me so I can test possible factor. Will post back my findings.

I am working on a computer that I just built about a year ago. Everything was fine up until a couple months ago. It keeps getting disconnected playing WOW. Here is what the problem is:

I did a ping test on, and the ping test is mostly 3ms or less. Maybe once or twice every 5-10 seconds it jumps up to where it should be (~30ms on the other computers on the network.) I have installed a new PCI network card, and still get the same results with 2 different network cards. I figured it was a software issue. After days of resetting the TCP/IP stacks, uninstalling software, system restores, and many other things, I formatted the hard drive and installed Windows XP fresh. Used the Windows XP driver for the network card, still the same result. Updated the latest drivers for both the network cards, Same result on both network cards. Updated the BIOS to the latest firmware. Loaded optimized settings. Result is still the same. The motherboard is an Intel DP43BF

What is causing the 3ms, 2ms, 1ms, and sometimes <1ms ping to yahoo? I am down to trying 3 more things: Installing Windows 7 and see if I get the same result. I am thinking there might be a virus on the boot sector, or BIOS. (I have run virus scanners, along with ComboFix) So probably change the HDD or Motherboard.

Any suggestions?

A:Solved: 3ms ping to

Just an update...

I installed Windows 7 on the computer, and the ping results were all running around 30ms. 3 30 second ping tests with both network cards, and they were around 30ms all the time. I thought it could be the disk I used to install Windows XP, so I tried a different disk with SP2. Back to the 3ms or less ping. I guess I will just talk to my friend and have them upgrade to Windows 7.

From inside your Bulk folder .. go to 'edit settings' .. you should see something like this .. I highlighted the option you probably want ..
Hope it works! I'm by NO MEANS an expert .. but that's how my yahoo is set up, and I get NO SPAM .. well, I mean I get it, I'm sure .. but its deleted immediately ..

I haven't been able to access my mail on for the past few hours (I'm on the uk mail server so this may not effect U.S.). It times out saying "Connection has timed out, server at is taking too long to respond."

I cannot even log in on the site. I can log in on, but it doesnt let me access my mail (possibly because my mail is on UK server?).

Is anyone else having these problems?

For over a week I cannot use Yahoo IM. As soon as I sign just disappears! I have tried different yahoo account sign in names...does the same thing every's gone within 2 seconds.
I have uninstalled...reinstalled...turned off firewalls, installed new updated flash player, ran ComboFix (I saw where lots of people having this problem used this and it fixed problem) Nothing is helping...Any ideas? Please help!

A:Solved: Disappearing Yahoo IM

OK....never got any responses, but I just kept trying one thing after another and I have it up to about 95% ! What I did after uninstalling, updating new flash player, turning off all protection such as AVG, REGCURE, etc. so I could install and run ComboFix(which didn't fix that particular problem, but sure did speed up my computer) I googled "old version of Yahoo IM" and found a website: from there I downloaded a very old version Yahoo Messenger 7.0 from there I let it update after installation was complete, now all works great, except when I go into photo or file sharing. If anyone may have an idea why I cannot photo or file share from the IM, please give me some tips! Thanks for reading about my problem, hope this may help someone else!

Yahoo Pops is supposed to disguise itself as a browser and collect your yahoo email. Since Yahoo stopped pop access in April of 2002, I was happy to hear about this program. I've got everything set up, but it doesn't work.
According to another message board someone else couldn't get it to work on XP either. On the sourceforge page, there is no official info that says it won't work on XP. But I think there must be something wrong.

Does anyone know the definitive answer?

The software is available at SourceForge.

I have a question about my yahoo mail. Sometimes I log on and I will have multiple messages stating that multiple sent messages failed to be sent and it states the message comes from Dameon. Now the issue is that I have not sent any messages or the ones I have sent have already been responded to so I know they were sent. Is this a security issue with my yahoo mail or is it a system error that I really shouldn't worry about?

I logged into yahoo yesterday morning and everything was fine. I logged out and left it. That afternoon, I logged in again and my name was changed to Evelyn Bass. I'm talking about my name. Not a nickname or anything. It said "Hello, Evelyn!" in big letters. You get the idea. I'm worried because I googled how to change it back and most people say you can't change it in the first place. Does this mean my email account may have been hacked or something? What should I do?

I can't find the answer to this anywhere. Since I installed the latest version of YIM, when I am talking with my friend, I see the "__is typing a message" but then the message never shows up. He confirms I am missing messages.

I have tried to reinstall (we both have) by removing the program from the control panel's add & remove program window AND going to the program files to delete the yahoo folder also (to make sure it is all removed) but, it still happens. It is extremely annoying.

I thought of going back to a previous build, but the only one I can find is the 5.6 build. all others point me to the 7 one.

Yahoo's website has NOTHING on how to fix this.... can anyone help?

(I have tried using MSN messenger, but don't like it at all)
