For myself, I am wondering if this is a prelude to websites getting ready for the WORM attack that is to take place on April 1, 2009. ???
That was on Yahoo news yesterday.

Edit
Story still in the news. An excerp....

Giant Internet worm set to change tactics April 1 (AP)

SAN FRANCISCO - The fast-moving Conficker computer worm, a scourge of the Internet that has infected at least 3 million PCs, is set to spring to life in a new way on Wednesday — April Fools' Day.

That's when many of the poisoned machines will get more aggressive about "phoning home" to the worm's creators over the Internet. When that happens, the bad guys behind the worm will be able to trigger the program to send spam, spread more infections, clog networks with traffic, or try and bring down Web sites.

I do not use IE. So above I just made a comment.

...when i try to access my yahoo mail...

At what point is the shutdown, The login page, or the mail inbox
list, or the actual viewing of an E-mail ????

At The page prior to the shutdown, click the small word 'help', at
the top of that page. Then look carefully around for a method to send mail to Yahoo Support. I have done that before, and got an actual E-mail response from a Support person.
