A friend, who I am helping on her computer, had someone staying with her for a few weeks who installed yahoo messenger on her computer. My friend would like to keep messenger but remove the other user from it. Any suggestions I can do or pass onto her to do to fix it so this doesn't automatically pop up. I went into msconfig and unchecked messenger, but that didn't help.
Thanks in advance all

Give this a try...

In the Yahoo! Messenger Sign In window, clear the check box for the Remember my ID & password option. (This will force Yahoo! Messenger to request a Yahoo! ID and password each time you start it.)

Remove the Yahoo! ID and password from the Yahoo! ID and Password fields by selecting the content in each field and pressing Delete on your keyboard. Yahoo! Messenger is now ready for a new person to sign in.

Have the new person type their Yahoo! ID in the Yahoo! ID field and their password in the Password field and then click Sign In. Now the new person can start using Yahoo! Messenger.

Note: Please make sure that the "Remember my ID & password" check box option is cleared before the other person signs in to Yahoo! Messenger.

Thanks Cheeseball81
When I go over to her place next time I will give this a try. Today I was not able to see where the sign in place was. It just automatically came up, even when I tried to stop it in msconfig.
It will be a few days before I get back to this. (having some radiation treatments for breast cancer so won't be on line for a bit.)
