Abruptly, I cannot log into my yahoo account. The error message says that
cookies are rejected. I have reset my privacy options to allow cookies in
all cases, and still cannot log into Yahoo. Waited a day to see if things
had changed, and still cannot. Ran all antivirus scans, to no avail. Any
help ? Not having issues with any other site and logging in.

Empty your Temporary Internet Files and shrink the size they can occupy.

Open Windows Explorer or My Computer to the \Documents and Settings\<your
account>\Cookies\ folder. Delete any cookies from yahoo (or if you prefer,
delete them all). Then try logging on to yahoo again.
