I CAN'T DELTE YAHOO MESSENGER

My son installed yahoo messenger. The program starts on my screen and his friends keep trying to talk to me. I tried to delete it, but it says I need permission. I am listed as an administrator. I read that I had to transfer ownership and I tried that also without results. My son tried to delete it and even withdrew his name and password from yahoo but it's still there greeeting me. I'm ok with him having messenger if it's only on his screen.

    I am able to see the "add/remove" section in control panel. I click on it and it says I need permission to remove it. I am the owner of the computer and the administrator. I don't know who's permission the program is asking for.

Everytime i'm using my yahoo messenger it will not responded


Please try uninstalling Yahoo Messenger and installing it or another instant messaging program. This usually occurs because the program is behaving too slowly and your computer is trying to catch up. Reinstalling could fix this problem, or your PC may just be getting very slow.
To remove it, click the Start button and choose Control Panel. Look for "Add or Remove Programs" or "Programs and Features" or something similar. After waiting awhile, you should have a list of every program installed on your PC. Find Yahoo Messenger on this list and choose Uninstall. After the program is uninstalled, restart your PC.
You may want to install a program other than Yahoo Messenger. It sounds like your computer could just not be able to run Yahoo Messenger very well. If you wish, install Miranda IM from this link: http://miranda.googlecode.com/files/miranda-im-v0.9.22-unicode.exe. You'll still be able to contact all friends using Yahoo Messenger, but it will be a faster, simpler program. Or, if you'd prefer to keep using Yahoo Messenger, download it again at this page: http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/.

My Yahoo messenger will not open, I cannot remove it, and any reinstall freezes up. Consequently I cannot use it


Install ccleaner and remove the Yahoo messenger Entry From the installed program list. Then manually delete the yahoo folder in ur program files folder. Then install your yahoo messenger. If you still have the problem u can use other messengers like trillian or meebo which acts as an alternate messenger to chat wid ur yahoo friends.
