    Here are some free programs you can download and run. These should find the virus and other spyware and remove all of it. First is Avast free edition anti-virus ( I use this one it works great )

    Next is CCleanner, this will find all the junk files on your computer delete them. It never deletes anything you need, I use this everyday.

    Next, Spybot search and destroy, this one scans your computer for harmful spyware, dialers, etc, it will remove them.

    Last is Glary Registry repair, this will scan your computers registry and give you the option to repair the problems it has found

    Again all of these programs are completely free to download. You will have to register for the Avast free edition anti-virus after you download it. It's good for 1 year then you will have to register again but it's still free. They do not spam you in anyway though. The other programs don't ask for any personal information or registration of any kind, they don't even ask for your email address so no spam. If you need more help you can email me from my answers profile.

    If you run these programs and it doesn't work, try running them when your computer is in safe mode. To put your computer in safe mode, shut it down, turn it back on while it's in the process of booting up press F8. when your computer starts up it's gonna look funny, don't worry it's supposed to. Safe mode is your computer running on the bare minimum. You won't even have your desktop picture. It's not needed for your computer to run so it won't load.

  • Did you try to install any third party software relating to Yahoo! Messenger?

    Or download any files using Yahoo! Share from any other user?

    Try completely installing Yahoo! Messenger after uninstalling it. Try scanning the computer with a good anti virus program. You can try Avast. That's what I use. It's free.

    If nothing works then install new windows. :P

    well, the best is to scan through your computer to see what is actually causing this, giving out your information to strangers, they can hack into your account, even just your email....
