Well, it depends. This
My husband swears he has bought a program that lets him see ALL activity in my Yahoo! account (including deleted emails, contacts, etc.)
is definitely complete bullshit. Without the active participation of Yahoo, this is simply not possible.
If he wants to spy on you, there are dozens of programs he can install on your computer that will record your every keystroke, internet browsing history, passwords, virtually anything. Depending on the quality of the software, it can be very easy or very hard to detect and disable. All you need to install such a software is physical access to the computer.
If you'd like to surf in private, some kind of live CD (I suggest Ubuntu) may help. Download and burn the CD image, then boot from CD. You won't need to install anything. The CD will boot into a Linux system which will provide you with all the software you need and is guaranteed to be 'clean'. When you're done, just remove the CD and reboot the computer and no traces of your activities will be left.
Theoretically it's also possible to eavesdrop on your internet connection, including a WLAN (even if it's encrypted, provided he knows the password).
The real question is though why your husband would tell you such a thing. What's he trying to prove, and has he considered getting professional help?
(Oh, and changing your Yahoo password can't hurt. You know, just for the sake of it.)
When life hands you a lemon, that's 40% of your RDA of vitamin C taken care of.

Thanks for the reply...
No, I don't need any of those things to hide what I am doing - I am not doing anything wrong. He does need help!!
I figured there was no way for him to see deleted messages or contacts, especially if I have even deleted them out of my Trash box. I honestly think he wants me to THINK he has seen something (thats not there) to make me "confess" to something I have not done.
I also sent a message to Yahoo!, too. Just to make sure.
Thanks again!! :)
