yahoo help

Postby cconniejean » Sun May 03, 2009 5:05 am

Posting my help request here for proper relocation, was unsure. I have been trying to track this problem down with yahoo so I can block it. I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I get this virus alert as soon as I log in to check my email and then a download prompt. This is just going to the email box, I haven't even clicked to open a email, and I don't use IM of anykind, I'm guessing this could be a ad coming through? Adblock is showing a lot of items being blocked, but somewhere not this one. This has been a problem for about two weeks now. Any idea?

I will give it a try on the Fiddler log. This is totally driving me crazy. Plus, yahoo is even more crazy. The answers given to my question silly, right down to recommending me to go to spyware-fix[.]net.
Right psdot I'll go to Fiddler and will be back if I have any questions.
