Not to worry. This is just the software problem. Just uninstall the yahoo messenger and reinstall it. This will probably fix your problem. If the problem persists, Just scan your system for some trojans, because nowadays yahoo messenger has become a place where your system will get infected to virus soon. Many hackers are using yahoo messenger as their tool. So beware pal.!!!!
Depending on what operating system you have you can scan for viruses or malware through an Antivirus program or if you have windows vista update and use the Windows Defender program it works very well to rid viruses, if not try to restore at an earlier date before the accident happened, go to start tab, accesories, system tools and system restore and go back in time to a day you can remember the PC being fine, otherwise you may be looking at a reformat , u might have to format the harddrive and reinstall your operating system.to clean out the viruses and malware.
This is not the forum for ranting.There is nothing we can do about this as we are not associated with yahoo. i unjderstand about hijacking your home page, many other sites and programs also do that.
As for pop ups, you can control them by electing to stop pop ups on yahoo.com in your browsers. I cannot under5stand what AVG coverage it took over. I use AVG and have 2 groups on yahoo site and don;t experience any problem with AVG being taken over or disabled. Try using some anti spy program and make sure your PC is not compromised with a trojan that is doing this.
it may actually be caused by a trojan virus.The name of this nasty tv is called TrojenFake.Alert. Download the latest version of Trojan Remover 6.6.1 asap This Virus will continue to cause damage to your system until it becomes unstable

The Yahoo Software comes with Spyware & Adware; never seen AT&T Yahoo Antivirus detect any virus in my experience. Unfortunately you have to install the software to setup your DSL for the first time; after that it's worthless. I would scan your computer with Microsoft Windows Defender or Ad-Aware by Lavasoft; both are free tools and find many of the common infections. Moreover, it wouldn't hurt to pay for a McAfee or a Nortin Subscription for virus protection; I use McAfee because it doesn't lag my system. There is a free virus protection program called AVG Free which I'm told works good for the price.
