so the title sums this up. when i start the computer, the first thing to pop up after windows loads is a Yahoo Messenger Sign In screen. Yahoo messenger is not an option under add/remove programs, nor is there a start menu group or icon for it.

is there something i can paste into start -> run, or a registry fix i need to do to get rid of this? any help would be much appreciated - i want rid of this program!!!

thanks :tazz:

Hi there,

Check out this link:

Are you sure you can't find a yahoo product in the add/remove programs?

If you still can't find it, install Yahoo Messenger from Yahoo.com. This will overwrite the version you have now and hopefully allow you to uninstall it.
