try uninstalling from safe mode
While starting your computer tap the F8 key once every second during the memory count up, or during the system spash screen where you see the system maker's name (HP, COMPAQ, DELL....etc.)

This will result in a text based menu. Use the curors/arrorw keys to navigate to SAFE MODE and hit enter.

you can also go to C:...programs...find the yahoo messages folder ...right click on it ..delete the whole folder..
set up your kids a limited user account to avoid this kind of problem in the future...if they are like most kids and want to IM each other..get Trillion...its a IM program that works with most all the IM programs and use Avast AV as its the only AV program that scans IM that I'm aware of..
Trillian is a fully featured, stand-alone, skinnable chat client that supports AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo Messenger, and IRC. It provides capabilities not possible with original network clients, while supporting standard features such as audio chat, file transfers, group chats, chat rooms, buddy icons, multiple simultaneous connections to the same network, server-side contact importing, typing notification, direct connection (AIM), proxy support, encrypted messaging (AIM/ICQ), SMS support, and privacy settings....click here to get it..
