I'm running Yahoo Messenger as usual. but when i double click on its icon on the taskbar, when i select it as my active application, or even when i scroll down its contacts list, a popup is suddenly generated..sometimes two..and it has happened on some occasions that i get flooded with those annoying popups..they won't stop until the computer finally hangs. i've tried scanning the pc using ESET NOD32..it's signatures are always updated.. i've also tried to fix some registry problems and such using Auslogics BoostSpeed. *great application by the way*..but it still the popups won't go away..oh yeah..it also happens that together with the popup, my internet browser (firefox) just opens up..it doesn't contain anything..it just opens up with a new untitled tab..
follow up: i've experienced that after using YM for some time, it just happens that i can't log in..it displays the message "Unable to log into yahoo messenger. please try a little bit later." or something like that. i just use it normally. and then it happens..is it an error with the program or something?
one more thing..i'm using Firefox as my primary browser..lately i've been having ads about porn or guitar stuff while in Yahoo Mail Classic..and it has happened that they appeared on a different website that i was viewing..
hope someone can help..thanks a lot
I forgot the computer's OS:
Microsoft Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Service Pack 2
