"no site configured at this address" when I click on www.yahoo.com. just started about 1-2 weeks ago

Posted

I am really a novice- old hippie type. I set up buttons on my desktop so i could get easily to my favorite places. Win 7 Prof - I accept all updates to Win 7 and Firefox.Home page is google/firefox. No matter where i try to access yahoo from- google search, then clicking on the web page; logging out of mail account, or clicking on yahoo pictures, i get the same error message. I did check with a technically literate friend and she gave me a suggestion that i try another link like www.news.yahoo.com and erase the "news" part and see if that would work. I got the same error message. I just dont know what else to do. BTW i will NOT be downgrading to Win 8. If you need more info, pls remember i am a serious novice . I really would appreciate any help y'all can give me because i miss yahoo. the old L.A. hippie chick

hello socalredhead, please clear the cache & cookies from yahoo.com and try to reload the page again.

This might be DNS issue as well. Go to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc and open file called hosts. Check if there is no yahoo mentioned there. If it is, you will have to open that file with notepad as administrator user and delete such line.
