I would like to get rid of Yahoo Messenger, but it is not displayed in the Add/Remove programs at all. I even tryed installing Yahoo again, and no luck...Yahoo is still not in the add/remove programs. This has really made me angry. I don't understand why it would do that in the first place. (Any answers on that?) Are there any other ways to uninstall this sucker? :tazz: Thanks

if it says it's because the program is currently in use, try resetting and then deleting the folder?

Heres the error I get when I try to delete:

Cannot delete pubmod: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use. How do I reset the folder?
