Please reset your browser, internet explorer and try to login to yahoo after that.

Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer (if it is running).
Launch Internet explorer
Click Tools
Click Internet Options.
Click the Advanced tab.
Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again.
When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box.
Start Internet Explorer again.

Now, please check you yahoo emails.

I didn't accept your answer because I tried getting connecting with Yahoo while you were working on an answer and it worked. I was able to get Yahoo again. I did contact Discover card and requested that the charge to Yahoo not be validated. I have had Yahoo for a few years now and getting a response like "CONNECTION REFUSED" was unbelieveable. I felt it was some kind of a scam. I sent an email to Yahoo Customer Service yesterday and told them the same thing. I'm sorry but I really don't think you helped me at all.
