Sounds like a tracking cookie issue to me, which is one reason I haven't used Yahoo for years...  Try clearing your cache and run Spybot Search and Destroy (it's a free download) to clear the cookies.  That ought to fix the issue.  If you aren't already running some sort of anti-spyware program it may surprise you how many tracking cookies and registry glitches you've picked up.  I ran Spybot on my parents' computer last year and cleared something like 5600 cookies, spybots, registry misdirects, and so on.
