[ad]Dear Computer Lady,

How do I get rid of yahoo messenger?

Thanks, Inga

Dear Inga,

To get rid of yahoo messenger, or any other program, you need to go to the control panel and uninstall it.

Here is how:

1. Click on “start” and then, “Control Panel”

Or, tap the windows logo key and type, “Control Panel”.

2. In the Control Panel, look in the, “Programs” section and click on, “Uninstall A Program”.

3. Wait while a list of programs installed on your computer is loaded.

4. Find Yahoo Messenger (or any other program you want to remove) in the list of installed programs.

5. Click once on the name of the program you want to remove, then click the, “Uninstall” button in the toolbar.

Or, right click on the program you want to remove, and click, “Uninstall” in the context menu that appears.

Your program will then be removed from your computer.

    “How do I get rid of yahoo messenger?”

    It is easy to disable Yahoo messenger. On the left side of the Yahoo mail page scroll the menu down to the Messenger section. Then just disable/log off messenger. Easier than deleting the program. And no chance of causing a problem.
