I was using Yahoo Messenger with Voice...my friend was using his mic but I wasn't. Yet he could hear the music from a video I was watching on YouTube. How in the world does that happen and does it mean he might be able to hear other things from my comptuer?

You must've had a mic on or something pushed allowing the mic to transmit sound-is there a built in mic in your monitor perhaps? The only way sound is going to go over the internet is if you allow a program to do it. I'm not familiar with the Yahoo chat, but is there a voice activation that you can turn down (or off) to help prevent light sounds from being broadcast across the net?

No mic that I know of. I know there isn't one on the monitor, too old and low tech. I see a mic jack on the tower, but no place where sound would actually go through. It seems as if they can only hear what's playing on/in my computer, not what's going on around the computer.

Is there a voice activation that you can turn down (or off) to help prevent light sounds from being broadcast across the net? I'm not sure because I don't know what that is.

There should be a setting to disable any audio from within Yahoo itself. I'm not sure where it's at, so you'll have to do some searching for it within Yahoo itself. You can also go into XP and adjust things there-Go to Start>(Settings)>Control Panel. A window will open. Click on Sounds and audio devices and tinker with those settings in there.
