Oh, boy.

That could be phun.

If I was you, I'd find the directory that Yahoo's in and see if there's an uninstall exe, there.

If not, or it does the same thing, I'd manually delete the damned thing. Afterwards, though, I'd make damned sure that I run a registry cleaner, such as RegSeeker:


to make sure it truly gone.

RegSeeker's sure to find loads of other crap in your registry, too. :D

You sound like you are having all sorts of trouble Shakree, is this all on your computer? If so, it would be worthwhile keeping all your questions, for now in one thread, so you don't get conflicting answers to different problems. Also you won't be asked the same questions or to do the same thing a dozen times. Personally, apart from the learning experience, a quicker and easier solution would be a complete re-format and re-load. Just ensure that your backups are current first.
