Yes its malware - do not click on the link or your contact list will be infected and all your contacts will be getting the same message

If you haven't clicked on the link just continue to ignore the message the same as the other one going around "Is this your photo?" and a link

If you want to run a check on Messenger - download the free Malwarebytes

It will deal with anything it finds without having to purhase the pro version

To keep safe do not open any links in Messenger without running a check on them

    But will it make sure that I dont get these messages again and will I be able to IM my friend again?

    It should not affect you contacting your friend
    These things are pretty clever - make sure your friend has not been put on your Ignore List - she should do the same for you
    > Messenger > Preference > Ignore List
    You cannot stop offline messages but DO NOT open links

Everytime i'm using my yahoo messenger it will not responded


Please try uninstalling Yahoo Messenger and installing it or another instant messaging program. This usually occurs because the program is behaving too slowly and your computer is trying to catch up. Reinstalling could fix this problem, or your PC may just be getting very slow.
To remove it, click the Start button and choose Control Panel. Look for "Add or Remove Programs" or "Programs and Features" or something similar. After waiting awhile, you should have a list of every program installed on your PC. Find Yahoo Messenger on this list and choose Uninstall. After the program is uninstalled, restart your PC.
You may want to install a program other than Yahoo Messenger. It sounds like your computer could just not be able to run Yahoo Messenger very well. If you wish, install Miranda IM from this link: http://miranda.googlecode.com/files/miranda-im-v0.9.22-unicode.exe. You'll still be able to contact all friends using Yahoo Messenger, but it will be a faster, simpler program. Or, if you'd prefer to keep using Yahoo Messenger, download it again at this page: http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/.

Everytime I sign into yahoo mail, i get multiple friend requests from Yahoo messenger. I don't see messenger in my programs,therefore i can't remove it, but I don't want it.


Unfortunately, you cannot block requests from Yahoo Messenger. You can however setup a rule in your inbox to delete them automatically so you do not see them. Read more about yahoos rules here:
