Thanks a lot!

I was advised from yahoo answers to use combofix but that didnt work. Every time I try to log in to YM it closes. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the program but it does not help. Please help anyone?

Welcome to BC dhyowi

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Further, ComboFix logs should not to be posted outside the HijackThis forums.

If that is your only issue, then you may not be dealing with any malware. As the first step I suggest you contact "Yahoo Messenger Support" and ask them. Chances are the same issue has already been reported, and a solution is available. If the Support Techs cannot resolve the issue, please post back here but let us know what they had to say.
