Yahoo Messenger, BUZZ, WORM?

Hello FixYa community,

I believe I have a worm in my lap top. I got this by getting BUZZD on Yahoo Messenger and in an instance, contorlled my mouse and the Save As prompt popped up. Then my screen frozed but I regain control of my mouse. So then I tried to bring up my task manager, and it was disabled. I panick and shut down manually.
I reboot and check the functionalites of my computer again. The task manager only pops up in a quick second, so is the system32 folder, my mozilla browser is inacessible, when I try to download AVG anti-virus software - a disruption occurs on installation.
Also, upon shut down, the ccApp comes up prompting to 'end task now'.

Please help. I will be forever grateful.

I had a yahoo messenger in my other computer, do I have to download a new yahoo messenger in this new lap top?

Yes you need to download a new yahoo messenger into your new laptop. Since the yahoo messenger is the application needed to connect to your account. if you don't want to install a program into your laptop but you still want to have the functionality of chatting us YM then you can access your yahoo email from yahoo. There is already a feature from mail like a yahoo messenger.

No buzz button on my yahoo messenger, im using powerbook g4 with ym version 3.0.1 beta (235554).


The buzz button appearing depends not on your system but on the software of the person you are chatting with.

For example if the person you are chatting with has an old version of Yahoo Messenger OR if they are chatting with you with their web browser then the buzz button will not appear in the Yahoo Messenger window on your machine.

Hello,I have been using yahoo messenger for a long time and suddenly it isn't my computer. I'm using windows vista. I'm trying to download yahoo messenger in my lap top again but I can't finish it....

Looks like your missing a .dll file. The error should tell you which .dll file your missing. You can do a Google search to find the .dll and where to put it.
