Hay, if your friend is offline in the contact then how she/he can send you message? It's only possible when you both are online.

Hello, Since yesterday something happened, one of my friend send me a msg on my yahoo messenger, then I replied but I realized that wasn't him and I think was a virus who was sending me the msg. Today...


Hi. You are indeed infected with a virus. But you can still fix it. Just download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware by clicking on this link.

Make sure it is updated before running the scan. Also, restart your computer after the scan and then test Yahoo!Messenger again. Cheers!

My yahoo mail is compromised. I get delivery failure messages when I did not send any and friends are complaining about messages from my account that I did not send. How do I fix ,this.


Something that you opened has 'read' your contacts list and sent a spam message to them all.

Delete all messages received since it began happening just in case someone you know sent it without realising. Sounds like Malware virus or similar.

Yahoo messenger chat windows opening blank...cannot see any messages or whatever am sending. Even offline messages are showing blank. Not allowing me to enter chat rooms as the window is opening all...


new virus infection: it can be fixed through deleting extra key in registry settings. navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Internet Settings\ then delete keys other than 0,1,2,3,4. that extra key may be alphabet "I" or something.. (0-4 is IE default internet zone security setting..)

Hi. my messenger send some messages from my id that dosnt from me


Your account has been compromised and is now being used to send out spam mail.

Just change your password and your problem should go away.

Just to be safe it may be worth running a virus scan and malware scan on your computer too. Just to eliminate a virus causing the problem.
