Sounds like a boot script. Yahoo Chat is a huge security risk to your machine and there isn't much you can do about it. The chat allows code to execute through the chat window to allow graphics and attachments to be seen and embedded during chat.

Personally, I use the java chat client for Yahoo or Trillian and they seem to be immune. But they have limited features too for that very reason. If all you do is chat though, its a safe compromise.

I woul like to run yahoo mesenger at start up wiht out having to ok it evry time i restat my pc. in vista i had no problem but, wiht win 7 i canot figure it out


When you install Yahoo! Messenger on your computer, the program is adds itself to your computer's startup list. Each time you boot your computer, Yahoo! Messenger, and all other programs included in the list, starts automatically. Having too many programs on the list might reduce your computer's performance. To prevent Yahoo! Messenger from loading and popping up on your screen each time you boot your computer, you must remove it from the startup list. Yahoo! Messenger allows you to disable automatic startup through the program's preferences menu.
1.Open Yahoo! Messenger and log in your account.
2.Click the "Messenger" button at the top of the Yahoo! Messenger.
3.Click "Preferences" and the "Yahoo! Messenger Preferences" dialog box appears on your screen.
4.Click "General" and remove the checkmark from the box labeled "Automatically Start Yahoo! Messenger."
5.Click "Apply" and click "OK" to close the dialog box.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Signed out of Messenger


A) A glitch.
B) You are signed in somewhere else.

Try it again. Also, if someone else is signed in to your account, you can boot them out by signing in yourself.

I'd change the password.

Cant delete yahoo messange from my computer


c:\program files\yahoo messenger, --- look for the folder yahoo messenger.

delete the folder.

right click start button. - click explore. goto programs. if yahoo messenger is listed delete it.

Now yahoo messenger SHOULD not load up on startup and be an phantom on your hard disk.

Please Note: If all fails, boot in SAFE MODE. then do this process. As well, your computer could be having yahoo loaded as an process making the file in use, thus being locked.

google on how to get into safe mode if you dont know how. I usually shutdown the computer a couple of times improperly or press an certain keystroke.

Hope this helps...
