Computer freezes when accessing yahoo!

I have IE 6.0 and am running WIN98SE and whenever I go to any yahoo page (geocities, yahoo mail etc.) it locks up my whole computer to the point that I have to hit the power button to shut down.

Anyone else have this problem? Know a solution?

Thanks

I have a feeling that those pages involve silly amounts of scripting. Perhaps you need to repair IE to get it all working properly....?

Are you using the new beta version of Yahoo? I noticed that when I used Netscape and the beta version it would freeze up for no reason and stop working. Ctrl-Alt-Delete was the only way to close it down. It may cause the same thing with IE 6.0

Not sure what the problem was, but I did a recover with the startup cd's and it is fine. Of course my rowser reverted back to IE 5.0
