Help as well please!
« on: February 06, 2014, 09:49:21 AM »
For some reason I seem to have acquired Yahoo uk&ireland on the computer. I have only ever used BT Yahoo for email and other log in processes (Flickr) and that's still operative.

I've been going round in circles trying to rid the computer of the unwanted programme with no success whatsoever.

Any advice or solutions out there amongst you computer whizzkids please?

Alan, can you expand upon 'acquired it'? Is it now your default search box? What browser are you using?

I think it maybe something to do with Flickr. I kept getting messages that BT Yahoo was changing, I must have acknowledged receipt of the message, I don't recall actively changing anything. Every time I go to Flickr it starts up with Yahoo uk&ireland.

Internet Explorer, that's been my browser since Adam was a lad, never a moments problem, and I don't want to change.

Flickr is now run and owned by Yahoo after they divorced from Bt.
You need to migrate your free bt flickr account to a new Yahoo mail account.(you need to open one )
I had the same issues and  now have to pay for a "ad free" pro account with access to stats.
Once again Flickr have made a complete balls up of the process making it even more unclear than the last lot of changes.
There is a thread with tips etc on their site

Hope this helps

I had a feeling that that may be the case Alf. So I'll have to bite the bullet and carry on.

While this is about Flickr, it points to a larger problem of outsourcing, etc.  Yahoo does the email for BT (and many other ISPs around the world) but then the deal ends and you lose the other added benefits it had.  Flickr has been owned by Yahoo for years now (2005)

And Virgin outsources its mail to Google - can you imagine the grief I had when they made that move?  :knuppel2:
I've always had Google blocked at Router Level!!!  :-X

It's at times like that I would happily revert back to the days of ISDN and Netscape Navigator...
