It is a hoax going around the world. It's some kind of hack made by someone. If you get the link from someone and you click it, you get the "messenger virus". This virus will make you unable to chat on messenger (yahoo or msn), and it will automaticly send links to all other people on your messenger list (all your friends and so on). This virus kinda destroys your messenger program, plus it makes the link go to all your friends too, meaning if they click it, they will send the virus to their friends, then if they click it, to their friends, and so on and so on.
Now, to be able to get the virus off your computer you first have to run antivirus, and then you need to redownload your yahoo/msn messenger. Then it'll all be normal again.
But, try never having it happen again. If you get a link with a text like "look, a photo of you!" or anything like it, just make sure you don't click it.
In the Yahoo! Messenger window, click the Add button. (With the Windows version, you can also click the Messenger menu and then select Add a Friend/Group.)
Step 1. Enter your friend's exact Yahoo! ID or alias name. Your friend must have a Yahoo! ID in order for you to add them to your list.
Important: If your friend does not have Yahoo! ID or Yahoo! Messenger yet, make sure to send them an invitation and download instructions.
Step 2: Select the group to which you want the friend to be added. If you want to create a new group, just type the name in the space provided. Groups help you keep track of friends (e.g, work friends, chat friends, etc.) separately. Note: Group names cannot contain spaces or special characters.
Step 3: Choose whether you want to use your main Yahoo! ID or one of your aliases (profiles) to add your friend. Your friend will only see the ID or alias that you choose, and not any of the others that you might have. Remember that you may need to close the Add dialog box and reopen it to see your new Yahoo! aliases.
Step 4: Send your friend a message to appear along with the notice that you've added them.
Note: When you add a friend to your list, the friend is automatically notified and given the option to add you in return. If the friend adds you in return, you are notified.
You need to right click on the Group Name and choose "Broadcast an IM to this group". The send message to group box wll open and you can already type the message you want for the group and click the "send" button.
If you still have no group, you can create one. Just right click inside the main Yahoo! Messenger window and choose "Create New Group". Once your group is created, you can just click-drag your friends' names on that group.
