I will have a fix for you that will disable the automatic feature of yahoo messenger every time you start on your system, follow my instructions first is open the yahoo messenger and then on the top click messenger and then click preferences or you may do the keyboard shortcut ctrl + shift + p on the general tab you will see automatically start yahoo messenger and you need to uncheck it and then click apply and then ok and now every time you restart yahoo messenger won't automatically start. (you may also uncheck some items if you want to configure yahoo messenger on your ideal way)

Hello Evin,

Your Yahoo Messenger is starting automatically when you start the PC because that it how it has been set, and therefore you will need to change those settings to prevent it from slowing down your PC:

  • On your computer go to Start, and then Run.
  • You will need to type "msconfig" in the prompt and then press enter.
  • After that go to the startup tab and then uncheck Yahoo messenger.
  • Click Ok click after that and then let the PC restart.
  • Note that in some cases, if the option is enabled in the Yahoo messenger, it may add itself back to the list of startup items.

Regards,

Carl
