Since this is coming from a client,

Have the client,

Reboot workstation.
Off and ON with router/dhcp server and Modem.
Check for viruses.
Restore Client machine to a couple days earlier.

Be well and Happy New Year.

As I research this further, I see that it is VERY COMMON amongst Yahoo users! How annoying, eh?

What sort of internet connection are you using? Cable? Dial-up? How quick is it?
