A friend of mine has an account on Yahoo. He can use his username and password but cannot edit a new/old e-mail neither to send any message. So he can only view the received e-mails.
In the past(last week) he got a virus but know the system it seems to be clean(verified withNAV).
How can use normally his account ?

Thanks

So the page just doesn't open? No error messages, for instance, in IE, at the bottom left? It's just dead?

If so, first try this: http://www.mvps.org/sramesh2k/IEFIX.htm

The page is active. All buttons are active. But when he can try to send/edit a message the edit area is un available.

Hi omegabeta,

there's a possibility that it's caused by the virus also... what's the virus name? sometimes certain damage inflicted need to repair manually... but then again... IEFIX should work... just in case it don't work, leave the virus name behind here... thanks

cheers,
Luis

Not sure about this but could a pop-up blocker be causing this? If one is installed on the computer, try disabling it and see what happens.

is it possible that the virus you talked about disable some components from your IE?
Yahoo pages use javascript alot. see if your jacascript is enabled.
go to internet options ~ Security
on internet zone click custom level and scroll down until you find Active Scripting.
It should be enabled so that you can use yahoo.

A month ago i installed win 2003 and set it to highest security and that caused me lot of problem with web pages. one of it is yahoo pages. and it is all caused by disabled active scripting.
Try that first, or you can always try other browser.
