Begiing yesterday, after no noticeable problems, I began getting an error message each time I start up Yahoo Messenger, keeping me from running the program.
The message says:

Runtime error!
Program: C:\Program Files\Yahoo\Messenger\Ypager.exe
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

The Yahoo Messenger window opens ust prior to this message appearing but I have no use of messenger. When I then click "OK" on the error window Messenger closes.

Prior to posting this problem here and asking for help I did the following:

Cleaned out IE temp files and cookie cache.
Ran Spybot and Adaware (after downloading all the recent updates)
Ran Housecall and Bit Defender free scans.
Ran Trend Micro scan PC-Cillin program.
Ran McAfee Stinger
Made sure I have all the most recent Microsoft updates (both regular and Office).
I have Spyware Doctor on my computer set "on" for all the available scanning and protection options.
Removed Yahoo Messenger from my computer and reloaded it.
Did a System Restore to 3 days prior to this problem arrising.

Here is my HiJackThis log file done after all the previous were completed:

Hi Guys.
Looks like my problem is solved, for the time being anyway.
I deleted the 2 files on HijackThis that said "file missing" or "no file".
Than I deleted ALL of Yahoo Messenger, using the "custom" uninstall and saying "Yes" to every option for removal.
I then rebooted my computer then reinstalled Yahoo Messenger.

Problem solved!

I really can't say I know exactly what happend or specifically what I did to fix it but am sure glad it's done.

Take Care all.
