Hi folks,

I bought a PC about 18 months ago. Ever since Yahoo mail would randomly take over my internet connection when it felt like it.

Only certain sites are affected...I have tried removing Yahoo elements from my machine and cookies etc but something is lurking and obviously the manufacturer (HP) must have put it there.

Please help because playing online games, visiting various sites, etc and getting dragged out because yahoo wants to sign you up to an email account is annoying.

Thanks,
Mark
