Download the latest flash player for your web browser -> Adobe Flash Player - Downloads

You need to close your web browser after downloading before you install the latest flash.

My next question would be does it work if you change web browsers, for example if you normally use IE, what happens with Firefox?

Hi mario,

Do you remember what the last change was before the problem started 5 days ago?

I recently had a similar problem that was solved with this solution :

http://www.emailquestions.com/microsoft-outlook/2877-fix-microsoft-outlook-integration-errors.html

Try updating all of your software with File Hippo - FileHippo.com Update Checker - FileHippo.com

If that doesn't work try doing a system restore to a restore point created 7 to 14 days ago.

Did any of those solutions help to fix the problem?

i did go to the link and down loaded but it still wont let me open my attachments what i did do is foward the emails from my yahoo back to my yahoo and i was able to open them,, i spoke with the geeck squad over at BestBuy and they are telling me that it souds like i might have a virus and it would cost about $200 to take it out and them i will have to buy an anti virus,,i have Norton right now but they told me that not all viruses can be detected and that once i have a virus it cant be taken out just by putting in an antivirus that they have to go in my computer and take it out they install the antivirus??? what do you think please advise me this is very upsetting and stressful...thank you 4 helping me

Heck no. Don't pay the Geek Squad $200. We'll figure out a free way to fix this! :)

Being able to forward an email back to yourself answers some questions and rules out several issues.

Can you forward one of the examples to example@EmailQuestions.com ?

:thanks:

Hi Mario,

I think we missed the obvious here.

Try uninstalling Norton to see if the problem fixed itself.

If that works you can replace Norton with a free anti-anti virus software called Avast.

Did you try turning off Norton or switching between the different versions of Yahoo Mail?
