    I just recently noticed that I cannot click on any links that someone sends me or I type myself on MSN and Yahoo! Messengers. Any idea why this is? It actually crashes my Yahoo! Messenger if I click on a link. I re-installed Yahoo, and the problem still persists. A friend told me it happened to her awhile back. She said to delete my cookies, then reboot, and maybe it will be fixed. I've deleted my cookies but I haven't rebooted yet. Just wondering what you guys think?

    Try deleting all of your \windows\temporary internet files and also the sub folders under Content IE5

    I found a program in my start-up tab that says ypager C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\ypager.exe -quiet
    This doesn't sound like a regular Yahoo! thing to me unless someone can explain the -quiet line. I unchecked that, turned off my computer last night, went to use it again, and now it seems to be working. If anyone knows anything about this, let me know.

    I ran Spybot, found a bunch of stuff, fixed them, and am now running the Cleaner and will run Norton AntiVirus after that.
    Will keep you updated!
