Re: yahoo messenger problem

This is not a virus, this is somebody hacking on your yahoo account, I would remake a new yahoo account and add your fellow friends.

You may need to format your pc. Because this virus can damage your hard disk.

Hi i use YM When i try to call pc to pc or if sombedy try to call me it crashes. Can you help me please ? Thank you !

Hello motus50,
I see you have a Yahoo Messenger problem. I would recommend you install a virus scanner. I use Malwarebytes (FREE) and Avast Antivirus (FREE) These two programs will find the malware hidden on your computer. Malware can be the cause of your computer crashing. Possible Result of issue: Yahoo Could be running a certain .dll file. That file could be infected. So the virus is just infecting your computer while crashing it. Just download those two programs and scan & remove them.
Try it again. And it should work. If the problem still persists. Try downloading a older version of yahoo messenger.

My OS is Vista. It keeps kicking me off Chat, then comes back online for maybe 5-10 seconds, then off again. . . . continuously. This just started about 3-4 weeks ago. To my friends it appears that I...

Try the following solutions.
  1. Most certainly your computer is infected with Virus or Malware. The symptoms are there.I strongly recommend a good Anti Virus to be installed on your PC and it should be updated before scanning and cleaning you PC.
  2. If the same situation persists uninstall the Yahoo messenger and get a Yahoo messenger of a different version from the internet. The latest being Yahoo version 11. You Yahoo messenger software on your Vista might be corrupt.
  3. You need to get a good Registry cleaning software to clean the registry which might be corrupt or may have wrong or missing entries for Yahoo messenger.
  4. If the problem still persists try repairing Vista which is final option. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in your DVD player and a splash screen will appear which will display a "Repair" option select it. If the splash screen does not appear insert the Vista DVD in the DVD player and restart your machine. Make sure you have selected your DVD drive on top priority on the computer BIOS setup. and when the message appears Press any key to boot from DVD. Press any key and the setup will start the select Repair Windows Vista option.

Auto runs my yahoo messenger its a virus.

Most messengers have an auto start function that is usually default set for opening on start up. You can disable this feature in the settings of yahoo messenger and then it wont run automatically when you start the computer. It's probably a virus, just a setting.

Please Read and answer me about UST Funny Scandal?

I've ran across with this virus called UST Funny Scandal. Its actually a worm virus that spreads immediately on all local drives and it originated somewhere in Asia.

When using YM, it actually sends automatically to all your friends this certain virus program via PMs. And the behavior of your messenger suddenly becomes erratic.

NOD32 could actually help but for sometime after removing the pesky "autorun.inf" which is hidden, eventually your drive won't work the same as it was before.

Best solution for this is to download a program called NOOB Killer and run it. After running it restart your computer and you'll be fine.

Also, turn-off your autoplay so whenever you plug a flash drive infected with a virus it won't run automatically.

To turnoff autolplay:

Run the RUN Command and then type gpedit.msc ( .msc stands for Microsoft Console). After running it, click the Administrative Templates and then click the System folder on the right pane look for "Turn Off Autoplay" and double-click it. Click the radio-button "enabled" and from the drop-down list click "all drives" and click apply and ok and close the gpeditor.

Enjoy. =))

Free antivirus forFunny UST scandel.exe

Funny UST Virus Activities:
First of all this virus is not funny at all, either it may put yourself in state of embarrassment when it sends some senseless message to your friends in your yahoo messenger buddies.
It creates following files:
  • Killer.exe in c:\windows\
  • lsass.exe in c:\documents and settings\all users\start menu\programs\startup
  • xmss.exe in the root drive of all partitions and also in c:\windows
  • autorun.inf in all the partitions.
  • the main file Funny UST Scandal.avi.exe in all the partitions and
  • Funny UST Scandal.exe in c:\Windows.

Not only this, it also creates the following entries:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell HKCU\Software\Microsoft\windows\Currentversion\Run\Runonce

You will find all these or some of these files if your system is infected by this virus.
