Preferred Solution: How do I change the picture on my Yahoo Premium Mail account

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Gang,

My Yahoo mail Premium doesn't allow me to search mail older than one month anymore. How do you retrieve messages older than one month?

Do you have to import or export it to another program? IF so which one? Thunderbird, Outlook, Earthlink or another?

How have other yahoo mail users dealt with this?
 

A:Yahoo Mail Premium Does Retrieve Mail Older Than 1 Month?

I solved this problem myself. I downloaded a program called Yahoo Zimbra. Its like Outlook Express only for Yahoo instead of Microsoft.

When I downloaded all my emails to my desktop I was able to search all the way back to the beginning of my emails. I had over 20 thousand so it was significant.

Yahoo Zimbra is a nice little tool. Too bad they don't advertise it.

I have IE9 and I recently noticed that when I'm checking my Yahoo mail from IE, any e-mail that is supposed to contain a picture in it, just is showing a white box with a red X in the corner.

Question:
I have a file in my yahoo mail with picture in them. How do I copy those pictures onto a cd. I need step by step due to the fact I am computer illiterate.
Thanks

A:Copying Picture In My Yahoo Mail Onto A Cd

Just a couple of questions, so the answer won't be too confusing:
1. Are you viewing your E-mails on the internet, or are you downloading them into an application like Outlook Express to open/read them?
2. Is the picture embedded in the body of the E-mail (like a web-page) or is it a genuine attachment (with the paper clip)?
3. Would you feel safer if you first put these pictures onto your hard drive, and then made a copy of these on a CD?

Cheers,
John

Hello,

I have tried to find an answer to this but cannot. Lately, I noticed my User Account Picture was not the picture I had selected. In addition, the Background Picture for my Windows 7 Home Premium edition log on screen was changed. This happened after running a program that is for exams at school which reboots your computer into a safe mode where the only program available is a rudimentary word processor.

I contacted the company that makes that software, Examsoft, and they told me how to get my default logon picture for my Windows Logon background back.

To address the User Account picture, I went into Control Panel > User Accounts and attempted to "change picture". This is not an option, however, for my administrator user account. It is an option for my guest account. I tried cloning my account without the bad .dat files, but that didn't work either as the new account I had created, also an administrator account, did not display a "change picture" option in control panel either.

I ran sfc /scannow, and it found no errors.

I am not sure what to do. Has anyone encountered this? Can you please help me?

Attached is a screen shot:

Thank You.

My Windows 8.1 machine has only one interactive account - the built-in "administrator" account. It is just an internal file- and media-server without a monitor, which is accessed exclusively through Remote Desktop.

I would like to change the "user picture" associated with that built-in admin account. Trying to do it the "usual" way - through Control Panel -> User Accounts - does not work. Apparently, user picture selection is handled by a Metro app. And Metro apps are not launchable from the built-in admin.

Most likely there are workarounds. I can try using that hack that enables Metro apps under the built-in admin. Or I can add another interactive admin account and try changing the picture of the built-in admin from that other admin. I don't know whether any of these will work, I haven't tried yet.

But is there a more straightforward way to set the user picture for an account? Like copy the picture file to some folder or something like that?

A:How to change the picture for the built-in admin account?

Best practice is to not use the built in Administrator account for general use. Create an admin level account for daily use and leave the built in account for emergencies. If you have only one account and for some reason you cannot log into it you will have no access, no easy way to solve the problem. Having an alternate account makes this much easier.

A:Unable to change User account picture

Hello Tally,

You might check to see if it opened a window that may be hidden behind another opened window. Sometimes these windows are small and can easily be covered up.

If not, then try a sfc /scannow command to see if it can find and fix any bad system files that may be responsible. Afterwards try again.

Is it possible to change the local user account picture at the windows logon screen via a command prompt.

Reason I need to do this is because I have about 200 workstations where the same exact local account needs to get created and a specific user account picture needs to be applied.

A:Change user account picture via command line

I don't know about copying just the picture. Log in as an Admin on the computer with the account you want to copy and Right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/System Profiles. Highlight the Account you want to copy (you cannot be logged into the account you want to copy) and choose Copy To. Choose a Network Share. Then Copy it to each of the computers in question that you want to have the account on. this should also include the picture.. Maybe someone can write a batch file that would send it to all of the computers in the network in one click.

I have a new W8 tablet. I want to set up a local account and add my yahoo email account to it. I don't want to have to sign in to a microsoft account to access my yahoo email. However, when I try to enter the mail app signed in via my local account, it always insists on my switching to a microsoft account. Is there a way around this?

Thanks

A:Use Yahoo mail app with local account

No. In order to use any Windows Store App, a Microsoft account is required. Since you have Tablet, I assume you don't have the desktop thing.

I don't know why you want to avoid MS Account thing. If it is about privacy then use one but don't store any email on Outlook.com or files on Onedrive. This is one way to use apps. Also by the way Yahoo Mail App on Windows Store is was removed by Yahoo. So I guess you can use the Windows Mail App for Yahoo.

Good afternoon everyone:
 
Yesterday morning, I went to check my yahoo email account.
 
In the spam folder I noticed a email to me from one of my other Yahoo accounts that I use when I sign up to online forums.
 
I obviously didn't send it to myself, so did some investigating.
 
I don't have any contacts in that account, and it looks like the spam email was sent to the two addresses I had in the sent folder, although the spam email itself was NOT in the sent folder. Nothing in the account settings appears to have been changed.
 
I logged into that Yahoo account. When I checked in the account information section, it showed someone had accessed my email at 4:14 am from Thailand via Yahoo Mobile.
 
I don not use Yahoo mobile, and in fact own no mobile devises capable of using the internet. I went to another computer in the house and immediately changed the password for that Yahoo account.
 
So, the question i have is, does my system have an infection, or is it an issue on Yahoo's end?
 
I have run full scans of my system using Norton Internet Security 2012 (up to date), Malwarebytes and SUPERantispyware. All came back 100% clean. Could there be something on my system these programs aren't picking up? Should I try running them with windows in safe mode?

Hi --
My yahoo mail seems to have been hijacked -- there are 61 sent emails in my sent mail folder that I didn't send, all were sent at 2:08 or 2:09 pm, and I think it blasted an email out to all my contacts. The only reason I noticed it is because I got a bunch or responses (mailer daemon failures, out of office, plus a handful of my contacts asking whether I'd actually sent this out).

My question: how do I figure out whether one of the PCs in our home that I use to access this email account is infected, whether somebody else's PC is infected, or whether Yahoo's servers were compromised somehow?

This PC seems to be acting OK -- it's Vista Home Premium with Windows Defender and Symantec Anti Virus (version 10 something) running. I read something online about using Hijack This and posting the log file somewhere, but am not sure whether that's the best next step.

Thanks!

A:Yahoo Mail Account contacts Spammed

Your yahoo email account has been hacked. If you login to Yahoo and look in the Sent folder, do you see these emails listed there ? If so, then your yahoo account was probably hacked.

Your tcpview log looks clean, but that does not necessarily mean that you didnt/dont have a virus that logged your password. Only way to check for that is to do a thorough analysis in the virus removal section.

Since a few months ago when she logs into her Yahoo mail account the name displayed there is "Lyric" instead of hers, and shows a picture of a woman in a position not comfortable to look at. She also can't edit her Yahoo profile. We suspect it could be a hacker, or maybe malware.

Oddly enough, one of the accounts on my computer, (mine) has Yahoo Mail working fine. Another Administrator account, however, is not able to connect to Yahoo! or any other secure connection. It can't be the firewall, though recently my computer has been hit with a virius that made my backround blue (on all other accounts but white on mine) saying

Your Computer is infected with Spyware! Click here to install anti spyware programs.

I used Ad-Aware, Spybot, and Norton, and destroyed the virius. Now, an account on my computer cannot use Yahoo Mail.

What should I do??

I ask this question every now and then to see if anyone else may have had this problem and solved it.
I use one particular Yahoo mail account daily on my desktop.Until a year ago I could sign in from my desk top or laptop.
About a year ago Yahoo requested that my password be change. They wanted something longer and more secure. Since then I can sign in fine from the desktop but the laptop gets the "Invalid username or password" message when I try to sign in. This happens in both IE and FF. I can sign in to a different Yahoo mail account from the laptop with no problem. It is just my main account which will not allow me to sign in from the laptop.
I thought it might have something to do with Comodo Internet security 2012 but this was just uninstalled and reinstalled due to another problem.
I even E mailed my username and password to the laptop ( using a different yahoo account) and cut and pasted to the sign in page.Still no luck
Doing internet searches I have seen this exact problem but have yet to see a solution.
Also the the "Invalid username or password" message comes up so quickly it does not seem that enough time goes by to have queried Yahoo about signing in.
Not sure what would be internal to the computer to block a password or username.
Suggestions are appreciated
Best Regards

A:Laptop blocked from a specific Yahoo mail account

About a year ago Yahoo requested that my password be change.I got exactly the same message in an email (twice), but I reported them to Yahoo! as Spam -Always recheck the sender and if it is a Genuine Email, or just more Spam - There are methods with opening the Email header -Never had another problem as I figure it was garbage -

I've gone through the write up on solving the problem "Your a/c settings are out of date" available on Microsoft Support Site. On clicking Settings of Mail app-> Manage A/c-> Yahoo a/c, the Yahoo A/c settings opens. There an old password of 16 characters is shown. My current password is 11 characters. I tried to change the Yahoo A/c Settings password to 11 characters several times but failed. I even ran "CCleaner" to remove "Saved Passwords" -> Restarted. No success. I Uninstalled "Mail" App using Windows Powershell & Reinstalled from Windows Store. Still no success. A screen shot of the "Yahoo A/c Setting with 16 character Password" is enclosed.

Hi!

I am having problems logging into my yahoo mail account in Firefox. When I enter my username and password, it automatically goes to the page "http://urlseek.vmn.net/search.php?lg=en&type=404&tbn=pandal1_0dn&q=http://us.mg5.mail.yahoo.com/dc/launch" and says on the screen "Sorry, we can't find "http://us.mg5.mail.yahoo.com/dc/launch". Please check the spelling of the web address." About every 10th time I try to log in it will actually go to my mail account.

I have tried:
1 - Microsoft malaware scan,(no infected files found)
2 - malawarebytes (no infected files found)
3 - superantispyware (which found 631 infected files)
4 - Trojan remover (no infected files found)
5 - Hitman Pro (no infected files found)

And after running all of them the same thing happens. I've also updated my Java and uninstalled all other Java versions. I'm running Windows XP. What can I do?

Thanks! KT
