    These steps are according to Yahoo! Messenger with Voice (BETA).

    Sign in to your yahoo messenger. Click Messenger >> Preferences

    Then a pop up will appear on your screen.

    At the left side, you will see the categories. Click on General.

    Under "When I start up my computer:"

    uncheck the box "Automatically start Yahoo! Messenger with Voice (BETA)"
