Your best bet is to Reformat, reinstall your Operating System

But if not able to...

Run a Full Version Antivirus Program ( a free one is AVG)
Norton, McAfee, Panda, etc... And Do a full system scan..
Also Run SpyBot Search And Destroy (a free dowwnload)
And AdAware.. (also a free Download).

And Try...

open the registry editor (Start->Run and type regedit) navigate to the keys

- HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
shell(killer.exe or xmss.exe)
- HKCU\Software\Microsoft\windows\Currentversion\Run
Runonce(c:\windows\xmss.exe)

and delete xmss.exe.

Hopefully this will solve the problem.

Hi tanuj
Sounds like you have a virus, worm or a Trojan in your computer.
To remove a virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer...do it the EASY way...let someone else do it for you.
Start your computer, as the computer is starting keep tapping the F8 Key.
This will start the computer in the Safe Mode.
Once in the safe mode go to the following webpage below and download, install, and run Microsoft Safety Scanner for FREE.
Once you run the Microsoft Safety Scanner (it may take quite a while depending on the size of your hard drive) it will remove all the virus's,trojans,worms,etc it finds, if it does not completely remove them all you will be given a chance to chat with a Microsoft Professional thru a pop open window and he will take control of your computer (with your permission) and finish removing all the rest of the virus's, trojans, or worms that are on your computer for FREE!! Can't beat FREE!!

Hi
You have a virus,worm,trojan,etc on your computer.
Keep tapping F8 to enter Safe Mode as the computer is starting.
Once you are in the Safe Mode then go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to scan and repair your hard drive, it depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.

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/.

I have unloaded and reloaded yahoo messenger many times i cannot receive im's and yahoo messenger keeps giving me a message not responding i thought i fixed it but not working again


Hi,
Make sure that you are not using Yahoo Messenger version 9 as there is a known bug about it. If you got the version 9 installed remove it from your PC & then install the latest version. Check you security software settings especially the Firewall. Some antivirus software could block the usage of messaging programs. Like for example Norton, check on the program controls of the Firewall.
Hope this help a bit. If you got any other questions regarding this issue please fell free to shoot me a message.
Thanks!
