yahoo email hangs when I sign in on Windows 98SE desktop

My yahoo email works swell from my laptop.  But it hangs for all of us after we sign in on our Windows 98 SE desktop.

I upgraded to the latest patch of IE 6.0, I ran Ad-aware, Spysweeper.  I restored the Defaults on my Internet options: to no avail.

Hijack this gives this; please help.

Also make sure to clear temporary internet files,cookies and check if that would help

Make sure to update your IE with all the latest updates along with your OS's

enable cookies as Yahoo needs it

Does other website and webmail work fine except for yahoo ?

Also try clearing temp files

1) Start --> run --> typein:  %systemroot%/temp
2) Start  --> run --> typein: %temp%

Post log using hijackthis if the above doesnot help

While waiting for an answer last night, I noticed your answer to another question I asked back in April.  I followed your advice, and did a scanreg/restore.  That fixed the problem.  So I have given you credit for the points.

Thanks.

Yes, it is fixed.  Sorry my first take at giving you credit didn't work; I'll try it again.

Thanks again.  You are doing a wonderful service to people like me who have the capability to fix the problem but don't know the specifics.
