This is kinda odd. Two out of the last four times I logged in to Yahoo Instant Messenger, an IE window opened. It was completely blank and just said "about:blank" in the address bar. I've been using YIM for years and it never happened before.

I hope this isn't spyware.

You will probably have to stop using IMVironments, if you'r using them. To do this, open YM, go to Messenger > Preferences click on Messages & under Miscellaneous uncheck Enable IMVironments. Apply > OK your way out. Run all your AV/Antispyware Scans to make sure your'e clean. Run also either or both of these online scans:

Eset Online Scan

F-Secure Online Scan

I don't use the IMvironments. I scanned with the programs I already have, but I'll scan with those too. Thanks!
