Can you explain in more detail please and tell us which browser you are using.

Do you mean that when you click on a link in the homepage of the website you get the 'website not responding' message?

Post a link to a website that does this or is it every website? (I presume you are not on the pc that does it or you wouldn't have been able to start your thread on here)

There were problems last year with IE9 and BT Yahoo page. Have you tried in 'Compatibility Mode'?

No you don't need a new email address. Just go to the url of the bt yahoo page using Firefox browser, log in and bookmark the page, or make it your homepage if you want to.

I also have the same problems (on 2 PCs using IE9 & BTYahoo) The problem is intermittent and seems only to have started within the last couple of months- has this problem been looked at by the BTYahoo gurus?

tammie_norie sorry you are having a problem. Please can you start your own thread (Click on 'Ask a Question') this thread belongs to rocketbob and his/her problem. It makes no difference that the problems appear to be same/ identical, answers on what has been tried get confusing when advice is for different posters.

reading my post i see that tammie-norie has the same issue with bt yahoo ie9 i went on the bt forum asked why the web pages were freezing someone said it was the ram on my pc but only using 48%. i used bt yahoo ie9 to log into pc advisor tonight but it took ages. if i uninstall ie9 then install it again it works for a while then starts to play up again. i also removed java because i was told there was a security issue with it is that right.
