I cannot get through to my yahoo mail - can log in but receive an error msg


As above, I receive the following message when I try to login to yahoo mail. This has been a problem ever since downloading some awful program called Babylon, which was claiming to give me a TV programme download I was after. I have cleared recent cookies and history, as well as deleting it and other programs from the hard drive.

"Not Found The requested URL /dc/launch was not found on this server. Apache/2.2.9 (Debian) PHP/5.2.6-1+lenny9 with Suhosin-Patch Server at uk.mg40.mail.yahoo.com Port 80"

Grateful for any help.

I have exactly the same problem

I found that Babylon had changed the proxy setting. Try going to Tools/Options/Advanced/Network/Settings and select "No proxy". This has helped but things are still slow and I suspect that some other changes have been made to the Firefox settings.

Installing unauthorised software on your PC should be made illegal. I will avoid Babylon forever so they have done themselves no favours by trying to be smart!
