  • Hi


    You need to find out where the program is actually starting from.


    Go to Start and type  msconfig  in the Search Box. In the Results, click  msconfig.exe.


    Click the Startup Tab and look in that list for the Yahoo Messenger program. Remove the check mark from that item.


    Click Apply/OK and reboot the computer.
