It's normal to receive instant messages from uknown contacts(obviously bots). It's a way of phishing or infecting your computer. When you respond to their IMs, they would reply with automated answers and then give you links that will direct you to suspicious websites.

Regarding the IMs that your friends receive from your account but you know you did not send that message, It is possible that your computer is infected with a virus or someone has your log-in credentials for Yahoo Messenger. Please run a scan using Malwarebytes or Trojan Remover to check for infections. And, change the password of your Yahoo account.

Look up the imposter and Flag their account. When you flag their account and block them, a pop-up menu should pop up with options and one of the options is "Someone is trying to be me"

Way for someone to chat that cant be seen when logged into their account from another computer?


You would be able to see any messages sent and saved unless they choose to delete them. Doesn't sound a great idea to be that focused on someone else account. Real advice, leave it alone and move on.

Hi,

When she logs in, click on Account, then Privacy Settings.

At the bottom of the page is Block Lists. Click on Edit your lists.

Enter their name in the Block Users space and click Block.

That should take care of it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I talk to someone on skype


1. First you must download the skype software and signup for a free account. You can do all of this at http://www.skype.com 2. You must make sure that you have a webcam, either built into your computer or a third party webcam that you bought in order to do video conferencing. If you want to do just voice, you need to make sure you have a mic. USB mics for $10 do a really good job and you can get them from any computer retail shop. 3. Once you sign up and make sure all the equipment is hooked up you need to search/find the person you want to skype with who has hopefully performed the same first 2 steps you have and sent you there username via email or some other method. 4. Once you find them through the skype built in search you should have an option to call that person, click on the icon that looks like a phone. 5. This should ring on the other persons computer and all they have to do is click on the answer button that pops up and you should be talking to each other.
Other than the signup and making sure you have a mic or webcam plugged into the computer all the steps can be done from within the skype software you downloaded above.
Hope this helps you on your way,
Good Luck.

Hi,
They do not know you are chatting to someone else, they just assume that if you do not respond right away, you may be talking to someone else, the best solution is to change your status to offline and then chat with whoever you want to chat in the privacy of knowing that the others do not know you are there. Latter on just tell them that the computer froze and you had to restart.

Hello, I downloaded Yahoo Messenger 9.0 to my computer and I can't figure out how to text. Can you help me with the set up process?


If you're tryin' to text someone's phone, you have to open a chat box with that person's username then click on SMS in the top right corner of the chat box and type in their cell number in order to text their phone.
