Had the same kind of problem until some one told me to do the following and it fix the hang ups and freeze ups at yahoo games. Delete your cookies and Histroy files. If you are not sure how to do it this is were you go . First open explorer click on "TOOLS" >internet options>Delete Tempoary files & also Click "Delete cookies". After I did that that was the end of all my problems with getting in and out of the yahoo games.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
