Have you changed your password since this started happening? What probably happened is that you logged into YM with the "Remember my ID & Password" option checked, and other people using the same computer are able to login to your YM account.

You need to change your password right away, and try to use a very strong password format (combination of upper and lower case letters, special characters and non-dictionary word match). This will void the stored password in the scenario I described earlier. The next time you sign into your YM, make sure that the "Remember my ID & Password" option is NOT checked, especially if your using shared/public computers.

If the computer has a keylogging program, that's a different issue.

Some one hack my account now i cant access, b coz hacker chained my messenger id and other things, how can i access & get current password?

Do you really feel someone can hack your account just like that now way, unless he has a hunch about your passwords? One hope is if That person has not changed the secret questions and their response.try to check that once..less we will try something else....I solved the same earlier that's why I am saying this.

How do I let someone know I want to IM himWhat do I click on to activate the program

First, add the person's e-mail address to your YM. Then send a message to him. Even if he's offline, he would receive your message.

If you would like to have an on-time conversation with him, you need to call the person and both of you needs to log-in to YM.

Have a great day!

I think it's a virus problem..which infected your pc seriously....either your pc is hacked or your messenger registry is hacked..if it's hacked any key you are pressing in keyboard it will be sent to host...even the screen of your displey can be visible by others...If your command button is working you can check it yourself...just go to start menu>run> Type cmd then press Enter. the command window will open...just type netstat -n here.. if there is any suspicious connection showing syn_sent or Fin_Wait_1 etc...then you are hacked or infected by trojan... .please install an anti-virus/internet security software or try to format all drive of your pc....Otherwise all of your important info can be lost or pished by a hacker.....Wish you all the best....

Is it a virus in YM ?

i would say it was a virus or a trojan horse run a virus checker as soon as you can also check on your contact list and your dial up modem list sometimes they link onto those as well tell her to run her virus checker as well also your contact list members

Hacked Id

Yes your email has most likely been hacked. This obviously means someone is reading your mail. Create a new account with a totally different user name (if your user name was leannraven don't make it leannraven2) and send an email to all of your friends to send mail to your new one and to stop sending to the old one. I don't know of any other way to fix this.
