Instant messenger opens automatically when I start my computer, but my computer is slowing and I think it has to do with the things that are activated at start-up.. How can I stop this ?

1)right click the messenger icon on the taskbar and go to preference and search through the various tabs. you will find " show icon in tray" uncheck that and click apply and ok. thats it.
2) click on START----RUN then type in " msconfig " and go to start up tab and uncheck ms messenger( or for that matter any other programme you do not like to run at start up). click apply and ok. Restart the system and click the "do not show this message again". Do not forget to thank me hah hah. Feel free to post in any queries to my mail address i.e. justice_thounaojam@yahoo.com

my dell inspiron 1525 webcam wont work with yahoo messenger

This is happening because the Dell webcam central is accessing the webcam at the same time as yahoo messenger. Click on start and click on Run(XP), Type MSCONFIG in start search (Vista) and you'll get the system configuration utility. Open it and go to the startup tab. Uncheck anything related to Dell webcam. Click on Apply and OK and restart the computer. If yahoo messenger shows a black screen uninstall Yahoo messenger and reinstall with the more recent version.

stopping Yahoo messenger loading auto matically


you can try the following .

If you have Vista:
Go to start>search
Type "run"
Proceed as follows.


If you have Windows XP:
Go to start>run
Type in "msconfig"
Go to the tab that says "startup"
Uncheck Yahoo Messenger.
Click "OK"

I'm sure you can also do this by going through the Yahoo Messenger's properties and options. I don't use IM, so I can't guide you through that.
