Not sure what OS you are using...but if you are using XP you can go to "start" - "all programs" - "start up" and remove all the file from start up...

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.

Yahoo messenger automatically shut down

Please upgrade first the version of your Windows Internet Explorer. The connection of Yahoo Messenger rely on Internet Explorer.

If you are using different web browser like Mozilla Firefox, It doesn't matter. Just install Internet Explorer 8 compatible with your operating system and do not default it as your browser.

Do this and you will find it easy to access your yahoo Messenger in just a second.

Here is the link for downloading Internet Explorer version 8. Select the operating system you are currently use.

After installing the IE8 and Yahoo Messenger 10, restart your computer.

Please comeback after establishing your Yahoo Messenger connection and give me some rating.

Thank You for using Fixya.

Then I search internet and found out that yahoo products rely its connection on microsoft Internet Explorer.....meaning yahoo messenger is best supported by Internet Explorer....So what I did is download the latest Internet Explorer 8 and download also the yahoo mesenger 10.
It did not matter whether you will be using IE8 as your default web browser or not. Just install IE8 on your computer ( still using mozilla as my default web browser)......after installing IE8, install Yahoo Messenger10....

After successful installation.. sign in at yahoo messenger and it will work...

If you want to know the link for IE8 and YM10 here it this file and save it..
1. Internet Explorer version 8 free download
2. Yahoo Messenger 10 free download

I hope this help you..
thanks...much appreciated if you rate this solution..thanks.

Auto runs my yahoo messenger its a virus.

Most messengers have an auto start function that is usually default set for opening on start up. You can disable this feature in the settings of yahoo messenger and then it wont run automatically when you start the computer. It's probably a virus, just a setting.

It is not opening .normally when i turn on my computer i logged in automatically,however thats not happening and the icon is inactive even when i select it.

In order to check your yahoo messenger is still automatically log in. Go to start, Run, type msconfig. The screen pop up for System Configuration. Go to start up, Check if you yahoo messenger has a check mark, If no put a check mark in the left box. If yes, you need to uninstall your yahoo messenger , then install agin the update one. Some of you files of yahoo messenger was corrupted.
