I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Are you able to navigate to "http://www.yahoo.com" and it not redirect to the site you mentioned?

Can you open your browser and type "www.yahoo.com" in the address bar? Once you do that, does it show you the old page or does it redirect you to m.yahoo.com?

It redirects it.....

DuaneMizellCommented:
In that case yahoo is probably redirecting their traffic to the new site. There's not much you can do to change that asside from complaing to yahoo about their new site. I don't believe there to be anything wrong with your computer.
I hope that helps. :)
Thanks,
