Computer experts - help!?

Up until last Fri everything was fine with my Yahoo! Mail Classic (hate the Beta version). Then on Sat. I couldn't open any of my attachments, not even the old ones. Usually, when I click Download Attachment, a question will pop up Do you wish to open or save this attachment? Now I don't even get this question! At the bar at the bottom of the screen, it says "Connecting to site 202.156.9.3" and then nothing happens. I'm using IE 7, but I tried changing browser to Firefox. It still doesn't work. What is this site 202.156.9.3 that I get re-directed to? I've been doing full system anti-virus scans so that's not the problem. All the attachments say No virus threats detected. I'm getting desperate! Someone pls help! Thanks.

    202.156.9.3 resolves to a site called maxonline.com.sg (from Singapore). I'm not quite sure what it is but you should run a good anti-spyware application like Spybot S&D from http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html (it's free). See what that throws up.

    Dear Sandy..

    I really dont know this would work or not.. but just try..

    first navigate to here

    C drive

    WINDOWS folder

    SYSTEM 32 folder

    DRIVERS folder

    etc folder

    and

    you will see < hosts >

    and open HOSTS file with note pad..... ( just click that .. it will ask which to open ... select note pad from list )

    now in that you will something like this written..

    like this

    **********************************************************************

    # Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.

    #

    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.

    #

    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should

    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.

    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one

    # space.

    #

    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual

    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

    #

    # For example:

    #

    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server

    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    **********************************************************************

    3) type "msconfig"

    4) go to "Startup"

    5) click "Disable all"

    6) click "apply"

    7) restart your PC

    8) try again
