    I am trying to uninstall Yahoo Messenger using Add/Remove Programs. It won't let me and this error message comes up.

    Can someone help?

    Thanks...and have a great day! Note: Just registered and first time poster.

    You have most likely run a Cleaning program that has the option to delete LOG files.
    Some LOG files are just that. Files that "log" activity.

    But some, like the one you reference, contain information about how to UNinstall that application.

    In this case, I would reinstall Yahoo Messenger, and THEN uninstall it.
