Download spyware terminator and malware bytes.
Run a scan in both of these programs and then go into the control panel and open add/remove programs.
Once in there uninstall all the toolbars and other stuff from websites.
sometimes when you download programs they have toolbars that also install with them.

This will fix your problem. and remember to rate this as FixYa!

    I would uninstall the yahoo IM. if you have to re-install the IM try to make sure you pick any option that has it start automatically.

    You can also open the run box and type msconfig and modify the startup tab. If yahoo IM is listed on there remove it and restart. Honestly though it is best to uninstall

Cant access my accounts


Find Hidden Email Accounts on a Computer
Trust in a relationship, whether parent-child, between spouses or at work, is sometimes put to the test.
When one party feels that trust has been abused, he might want to ease his doubts.
New technology makes it possible to effectively hide email accounts, but most people do not use or understand this technology.

Check the history on your Web browser for free email sites like mail.yahoo.com, hotmail.com or gmail.com.
Most of the time nontechnical users do not realize how much information is contained in the browser history.
When searching the history, most free email accounts will show up with the various user names that were used to connect to them.
It is easy to differentiate between regular email accounts and new suspicious ones.
Check her regular email accounts.
Most free email accounts have the option to enter a trusted email address to be used in case the user loses her password, or to warn her if that information changes on the account.
Checking for such email is easy and quick.
Do a search on the account for words like "welcome," "yahoo.com" and "gmail.com" to check for communication from free email providers.

Check for instant messaging logs.
All major free email accounts have free instant messaging such as yahoo messenger, msn and gmail talk.
Each of those messaging services have logging options that save the live chats to the hard drive. If you have an instant messaging software installed, check to see if the logging option is turned on.
Check in the software where the log is saved and go to that location.
Installing messaging software usually creates one folder named after each account to store the logs.
Check for virtual machines on the computer.
More technical people might be tempted to install a virtual machine that allows them to have a dedicated operating system to use as their own.
If you have a virtual machine software such as Vmware, Virtualbox or Virtual PC, try to boot any operating systems present and do the same searches done on the main computer.
Install a key logger on the computer to monitor activity taking place during anonymous browsing. Modern browsers have an anonymous browsing mode that does not record anything done while turned on.
It is easy, however, to install a key logger that will record everything the user types on the keyboard.
It will allow you to discover any email accounts accessed during anonymous sessions.

How do i turn on my webcam?


Hello,

First, make suer you have the camera drivers installed.

Here's how you can use the camera with Yahoo messenger, for instance:

Head to the Yahoo home page, turn on Yahoo Messenger using the 'Messenger' link and log in using your account name and password. You'll need to create an account if you haven't done so already (see Resources below).

Click the 'Messenger' followed by the 'Start My Webcam' option. This will load your webcam, and is among the ways you can get your webcam to begin broadcasting.

Click on the camera icon that appears in a chat window while you are talking to a friend

Click on a contact from your Contact List, then click 'Invite to View My Webcam.' This opens a new IM window with your webcam active.

Click the 'View Webcam' link while talking to others in IM. This will allow you to see their webcams.

2. Click on Preferances.
3. Click on General.
4. Check box says: "Open web links in new browser window."
5. Check box that says: "Automatically sign me in when I click on a Yahoo link in Messenger."

I cannot get logged into yahoo instant messenger. When and if I get logged in, I'm cut off at 11 p.m. every night. I downloaded the 9 but still doesn't help. thanks, lavina


You may want to contact your Internet Service Provider and ask them if they block out Yahoo Messenger service. Also an option under Connection Preferences before you sign in to your Messenger, where you can set it to Firewall with No Proxies. You select what type of internet you have below and hit apply. This will however disable some features such as file sharing, and possible webcams.
