I installed Yahoo Messenger to try it out and then decided to uninstall using the remove programs option in Windows XP. Having done so I find that a Yahoo folder still exists in my Program Files containing numerous files - should I delete these manually?
I also get a pop up message on booting up warning that a Yahoo dll file is missing.
No I think the Reason is yahoo use web beacons to follow your surfing ( all sites - not just yahoo)for whatever purpose. you can disable them if you know how - but it is a sophisticated tracking system
1. go to internet options and *hit* the delete cookies, delete files, and clear history then, refresh your browser and close it. 2. uninstall yahoo messenger 3. restart your PC 4. go to START -->> RUN and type *regedit* without (*) of course. REGISTRY WINDOW will pop up. 5. at the EDIT MENU select FIND and type *Yahoo* - this will search for Yahoo registry directory. 6. from Yahoo directory click the *+* plus sign to expand the folder. Look for *+Pager* click the plus again and look for *+profiles* you'll see here all your yahoo ID <<---- from here look for the *FOLDER* of the Yahoo ID you're having problem with and HIT delete!!! 7. close the REGISTRY window.
Uninstalling YAHOO from drive C or in any drive will not remove itself from the registry. What is left in drive C after uninstalling it are files that need to be deleted manually. You won't see in drive c, d, etc. the Yahoo ID or profiles...it's all in the registry.*HANDLE WITH CARE THE REGISTRY* b'coz if you delete something accidentally...some programs might not RUN
