    Do you have a firewall? and which anti virus do you use?

    Try running a virus scan asap and also ad-aware
    Also uninstall yahoo messenger and then install it again.

    Do let me know if the problem still persists. will try something else.

    Try the admin's idea and if you still face the problem, my suggestion is to format your XP. Don't forget to take backups if you gonna perform formatting.

    Dude, formating and reinstalling XP is not that easy. Also a complete reinstall will take at least 2 days with all other applications.

    well, I too know that formatting isn't an easy task. It's not a hard one though. But, what if you face necessary situation. You may need to spend 5 to 6 hrs to resintall the necessary applications.

    Restoring to an earlier date can fix your problem..

    and if you want to check your PC for any virus or malware issue..get you antivirus with latest update and start your PC in Safe Mode and scan for it.
