Very strange

eviempDecember 19, 2013

Computer is working fine but now every time I go to the yahoo.com site where I have my stocks, the page freezes and the whole computer freezes. It doesn't happen with anything else and that site was fine yesterday. Anybody have any ideas what to do? Thanks so much. Evie

You've rebooted the computer and cleared cookies from your browser?

If you're up to it..

Copy and paste the text between the stars into notepad

Have you tried it from more than one browser?

Sounds like a browser problem to me too. I agree with the preceding post to try using a different one.

Thanks everyone. I think I may have figured out the problem. I just noticed that Yahoo finance was 'upgrading' the site and they must have frozen it or something. I have no idea what, but I finally just deleted the whole site and redid it with their new, supposedly better, site. Hmmm, sure looks exactly the same! But thanks for giving me ideas.
