Yahoo Mail "If you are seeing this page, your browser settings prevent you from automatically redirecting to a new URL"

One of our PC's has some internet browsing issues, specifically, after logging in to Yahoo Mail, this displays briefly: "If you are seeing this page, your browser settings prevent you from automatically redirecting to a new URL", then a really basic HTML only page loads with a Yahoo search bar, the user tells me other sites are also not loading properly. So far I've made sure there's no pop up blocker (even disabled IE's), I disabled all the McAfee security stuff, and reset all the IE settings. I have not tried another browser. Thanks for your help.

Have you tried adding it to the trusted sites?

Just tried that and still no luck. Also, I installed Chrome and the issue doesn't occur in it and I did a quick scan with Avast Free Antivirus which didn't find any threats.

Check that Javascript isn't disabled. Open CONTROL PANEL -Internet Options - Security, and either move the slider to the default (Medium-low) or click custom level and turn on scripting settings. If you don't open it from control panel you might not get the option to change it as IE will already be open.
If you don't need to worry about preserving settings, then you could also go to the Advanced tab and click 'Reset' to default it back to the original settings.
Failing that there are loads of articles all over the web about this - http://www.google.com/search?q=If+you+are+seeing+this+page%2C+your+browser+settings+prevent+you+from+automatically+redirecting+to+a+new+UR&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a
It's almost certainly a setting in IE that causing it as it doesn't happen in chrome

Hope this helps
