Irv9, you have two of these questions posted.  You probably hit your browser refresh key while waiting for a reply to your question after receiving the Experts Exchange acknowledgement for posting your question.  That just causes the question (or comment, if you've just typed in one) to be reposted.  At the acknowledgement, you should click on the link for Reload Question at the top right of the page instead.  (If you haven't just entered a question or comment, then browser refresh will work ok.)  Delete the other copy of this question to get your points back.


Now, about your problem:  are you using Auto Complete in your IE?  If so, perhaps it has stored a wrong password.  I suggest turning off Auto Complete, re-start the IE, turn on Auto Complete again (if you want it) and re-enter your Yahoo password.

Goto -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Click the content tab (at the top of the box) -> click the Auto complete button -> click both the clear forms and the clear passwords buttons.

Then try and enter the password again.

Irv9,

This is because you are typing in your password before the page is completely loaded and the finsishing of the page load is adding a space at the end of your password.  I had this happen to me for a few weeks.  Now I just let the page load first. Try and wait for the page to completely load before typing your username or password.

That is exactly the same answer I gave!  That's what "turn off Auto Complete" means!  Oh, well...  Next time I'll be even more detailed.

I am sorry Lee. I tried your suggestion and turned off the auto complete only without hitting the other options. You have to take us old folks by the hand, I am sure you understand.

I don't think it had to be that drastic anyway.

Why turn off the whole of auto complete, Irv9 may use it a lot even if he doesn't know he is using it.
