I am using yahoo messenger 7 currently and I am facing so many annoyances and problems recently. Yahoo messenger (7 as well as 7.5) crashes at different times and by different actions, meaning, it crashes during the day as well as nights, while chatting with a friend in my list, as well as when I try to join a chatroom. It may not crash while joining the same chatroom at some other time. In addition to this, sometimes when I just click on the chat button to go to any chatroom, it crashes too. This is really really so frustrating. It is getting on my nerves. I have tried cleaning my system (windows xp professional sp2) with norton antivirus 2006, ad-aware, spyblaster, etc. and also ran "sfc /scannow" to check if the original windows files were intact or not, but nothing has worked. Please suggest something to get rid of this. Does this problem have anything to do with limewire or bitcomet that are installed in my system? The problem of crashing of yahoo has begun since two weeks or so, and limewire and bitcomet have stayed installed in my system forever. Sometimes, the exe file called "svchost.exe" takes up all the memory and stops the functioning of the system being stuck for some minutes. I am just letting this know to offer as many signs or clues as possible which may have some link to the yahoo messenger problem. Please help. Thanks in advance.
