Search Yahoo Problem

Folks, i decided to give yahoo! Search a shot as an alternative to google i have been using, but there is something really bothersome, i am wondering if it is y! Causing this or it is my system, browser, etc?

When i type a search in yahoo, for example "how to edit sendto menu pcmag", it pulls up results, since i am looking for what pcmag had to say about it, i add a pcmag keyword, the link i want to see is listed in the first place, but sometimes, not everytime, when i click on this link, i end up in a totally unrelated advertisement website. It doesn't happen with google. Just a few minutes ago, i was doing another search about windows 7's media center, i clicked on of the search results and i ended up in this vlc media player advertisement. At first you don't notice, you skim through the page and once you can't find the information you are looking for, usually you wake up within a second, you go back, click the link again and this time the result displays correctly.

What is happening here? I use msse for virus protection and spybot for spyware protection, if it is yahoo abusing it, i am going back to google.

Cannot Get Yahoo Mail To Load

Gateway profile 4 with windows xp. Through internet explorer, yahoo loads but the mail will not. I can see the messages in the quick view but can not access. I have downloaded windows service packs 2 and three and ie 8. The message where the mail loads just continues to say loading. I can access from any other computer. I have enable scripting. I was told by somebody that looked at this computer that microsoft said the op system was not authentic. Still don't believe because i was able to download and went through windows genuine advantage diagnostic; and the results were that the validation status is genuine. Ny suggestions?

Can't Print Yahoo Email To Printer

I can't print my yahoo or hotmail email from my toshiba satellite laptop to my canon mp620 printer. It was working fine until today.

After clicking the print button a popup displays with windows explorer has stopped working, followed by another saying windows is checking for problems, followed by windows is restarting. This takes me to my home page and i can try it over and over with the same results. Any suggestions will be appreciated. However i can print any of my stored documents not on the internet. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Randomly Lose Mapped Drives

We have windows server 2003 r2 with shared drives. We have windows xp pro and windows vista ultimate workstations and have no problems with any of these machines.

Drives are mapped using a kixstart logon script

We have just installed 11 new dell optiplex 760 workstations with windows 7 professional pre-installed.

Randomly on several of these machines, users are reporting that they lose connection to shared drives. A red x is showing on all shared drives and double clicking on these does not work. The pc's are not idle at time of disconnect.

Trying browse to drives using servernameshare does not work.

When the drives disconnect users can still access internet and exchange server for email which is also on the file server.

Logging off and logging on again is also unsuccessful.

The only way to get access to the shared drives is to  restart the pc.

Display Power Settings Are Not Saved

Power settings won't stay as saved - display setting always reverts to 3 minutes after re-boot. Maybe i don't yet understand how the new windows 7 works, but i can't seem to set my power settings and have them stay there. I've set them to turn off the display after 15 minutes and put the computer to sleep at 30 minutes. But when i re-boot the machine, the display setting always reverts from 15 minutes to 3 minutes. Is there any way to save these settings and have them stay as saved?

Editing Drives That Are Saved By A System Image

How do i prevent windows from automatically adding a drive to a system image. I have a couple of external hard drives that i use with my laptop. One has a large number of files and programs(mainly games) that i use, but i do not need them to be backed up. The other i save all of my backups to. For some reason windows wants to make a system image of both the laptop's internal hard drive and the external drive with all of the games on it. I only need the internal hard drive backed up and i am wondering how do i tell windows to not create a system image of the external drive, or are there any files on the external drive that are causing windows to think it needs to backup the drive?

Taskbar Flashes - Application Appears To Lose Focus

When running some programs (i.e.microsoft access 2007 and tinker to name two), the programs appear to lose focus to the task bar in windows 7. The symptoms are as follows: 1) program window flashes (for microsoft access it happens only with the file open form) and the icon for the program on the task bar inexplicably scrolls to the right and back with each flash.

When this is occurring, it is nearly impossible to select an access file to open with the open. Dialog or play to play the game tinker. Setting hkey_current_usercontrol_paneldesktopforegroundlocktimeout to equal 30d40 seemed to resolve a similar issue with minesweeper, but not the other programs mentioned above. One more item to note: the issue appears to be user account specific. Any ideas?

Yahoo Mail Doesn't Appear In List Of Email Programs In Ie8

Yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer 8 options although i have installed the latest version of yahoo toolbar. I have an e-mail account on yahoo. I want to use yahoo mail as the default e-mail program so it opens directly when i click on any e-mail link.

I went to this page: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/settings/settings-10.html

It says that i need to install the latest version of yahoo toolbar to do that. I have done that but yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer options, there are only hotmail and outlook. I have contacted yahoo customer care and they told me that i have to contact microsoft support about this issue, and when i tried to do that, i found there is no support by e-mail, it's only by phone, and i like to use the e-mail one.

Anyone from microsoft support or community member can help me in my issue, which is to make yahoo mail appear in the list of e-mail programs so i can choose it as default email?

Steady State Removes Saved Information When Updates Install

We are a small school and have only been using steady state for a few months. I have found that certain information that has been saved to the computers is being erased when steady state allows updates each week. For example:

Good search has been set as our default webpage and our school listed as the charity of choice. The school name will stay until tuesday nights we we leave the computer up to install updates. Once the updates are installed the school name is gone.

Now i think the same thing is happening with the new copier we set up last month. I have access codes for each teacher saved under their computer login. This is the second time that they were able to print all week, but after updates on tuesday several are missing the access codes.

Any suggestions?

Favorites Adding

Before i downloaded this new version i was very content with the fact that next to my favorites star button another star button with a plus for easy adding without having to open the annoying favorites menu for adding. Giving that option back to us, well me since i loved the option so much, would be absolutely great. And no i don't like that new option that goes with the star button that has the arrow, hate it. I would like to put the adding favorites button back into my toolbar, not going to the menu.

Favorites Not Working

I have ie8, vista, for some reason, all my favorites are no longer working. Meaning. They all display on my favorites tab, but when i click on it, nothing happens. My history tab works, all the links open up as they should, however, the favorites do not work.

I have tried to restore ie default settings, i resorted back to ie7, i reloaded ie8. I have exported the links (all look fine on export) i have deleted all of them, i re-loaded them and no luck. I click on them, select the arrow to the right, and nothing.

Favorites Missing

Over the last 2-3 weeks all the links within ie8 favorites have disappeared. In fact when first clicking on favorites the following error message appears:

"Location is not available - c:users*name*musicfavoritesfavorites refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be in a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet on your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been move to a different location"

Subsequent clicking on favorites within ie8 then just comes up completely blank. I can find all the links within a favorites folder in the music folder location. I don't know why the favorites have been moved and how to rectify this. Any advice would be appreciated.

The problem is on a laptop running windows vista home premium service pack 2.

Ie8 Favorites Do Not Work

I have the following problems with favorites in ie8:

Adding a favorite creates it twice (once with the url as name, once with the page title as name)
Clicking on any favorite in ie does nothing (no error, no feedback)

Favorites can be deleted without problem
Opening the url file in explorer opens a print window (the print is empty)
Reinstalling ie8 had no effect and no spyware was detected by multiple scanners

Anybody have any clue what could be the cause of this?
