Yahoo Email Problems

When I attempt to acess Yahoo Mail from Internet Explorer, I receive the following error message; "Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site" " Operation aborted".   The error message appears and up to twenty windows open in quick succession. Up until today I was acessing the mail site with no problems.  My operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium.  PLEASE HELP.

Hi  Floyd lacewell,


Welcome to Microsoft Windows Vista Forums.


Do you experience same problem with other websites?

What is the version of Internet explorer?

Check if you are able to access hotmail or gmail ?

 We can try to get the internet explorer settings to its default.

 How to optimize Internet Explorer:

Please do restart the computer after you have done with the Internet explorer optimization.


Try the steps mentioned in the below Microsoft KB article if the above steps do not work.

Why do I receive an "Operation aborted" error message when I visit a Web page in Internet Explorer?


Hope this information is helpful.

Let me know if this worked.

 All the best!


Thanks and Regards:
