I suggest that the first thing you do is change your password. I recommend you do it from another computer. Just to be safe.
Then, download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from http://www.download.com
Make sure that it's up to date, and run a full scan. It should detect something that may be hijacking your Yahoo messenger.

delete him from your list of contacts and block all emails from his email address, I would also consider checking for malware and viruses, try uninstalling yahoo messenger after you remove him and reinstall it again.good luck

In yahoo messenger, I can type a message in a chat window but cannot see it nor the responses sent back.


Hello there,

You might have been infected by a virus. The best solution here is to uninstall the existing yahoo messenger on your computer thru the control panel then download and install the latest version in http://messenger.yahoo.com.

I am getting uneccessary links which is being forward to others


It is a hoax going around the world. It's some kind of hack made by someone. If you get the link from someone and you click it, you get the "messenger virus". This virus will make you unable to chat on messenger (yahoo or msn), and it will automaticly send links to all other people on your messenger list (all your friends and so on). This virus kinda destroys your messenger program, plus it makes the link go to all your friends too, meaning if they click it, they will send the virus to their friends, then if they click it, to their friends, and so on and so on.

Now, to be able to get the virus off your computer you first have to run antivirus, and then you need to redownload your yahoo/msn messenger. Then it'll all be normal again.

But, try never having it happen again. If you get a link with a text like "look, a photo of you!" or anything like it, just make sure you don't click it.

I hope this helps.

lmekond.sys has not been registered as yet as a virus. It may be new?

The best advice, rather than formatting your hard drive, is to try a few virus, anti-root kits and scumware removal tools from the following site:-

Read the reviews and also what each one does before deciding, and you may save your system.

Good Luck
