I've been having a problem deleting Yahoo Messenger from my program files. When I tried to delete the Yahoo folder a message pops up that says ymmapi.dll denied. Source file may be in use. I have Windows 2000 professional. I'm trying to delete the program folder because I can't seem to open Yahoo Messenger, regardless of what I try to do from their help menu. So I was going to delete it from my computer and try to install again. But I don't know what that message means. Thanks,

Welcome to TSG :)

Have you uninstalled Yahoo Messenger from Add/Remove Programs first?

Hi Yes, I was able to delete in safe mode. Thanks, why did it work in safe mode, if I may ask? Thanks.

You're welcome :)

Because just the essential programs and files are loaded in Safe Mode. So most files aren't in use.
