I recentley downloaded Yahoo Messenger, and now i want to get rid of ALL of it. Not only did it download messenger, but a load of other guff as well like toolbars, BT communicator, Mail etc.

I have managed to uninstall most of the seperate entities using add/remove programs, but Yahoo Mail will not go away. It does'nt have its own uninstall either.

I also can't delete it using explorer...'cannot delete idle.dll Access denied. Make sure disk is not full or write protected and file not in use'. Tried this again and a different file came up that it couldnt delete...ymmap.dll

Any ideas how to get rid of Yahoo Mail?
