could be the fact that avast likes to monitor web scripts to catch viruses in them. I've found avast doesn't seem to work well with mail, my parents had trouble with avast and outlook, and i had a few problems with it as well. Try disabling the web shield and see if that works. If that doesn't work try completely disabling the resident shield just long enough for you to login to yahoo mail and then try logging in. Otherwise you could disable avast from starting up and disable realtime monitoring in it and use AVG free edition to handle that.
Just a thought, hope all goes well and welcome to CF
