    Computer savy people, can you help?

    The last several months my yahoo messenger has been acting up. It will be working fine and dandy, and then all of the sudden replies from the other people stop coming. Yeah yeah, I know what you're thinking. "Maybe they just stopped talking."

    But if I sign off, and then log back in, all their messages come in the form of offline messages. They get mine, but I can not receive theirs. It doesn't give us any error messages or any indication that something is wrong until this happens. It does it on MSN as well, but not nearly as much.

    I have checked my security settings to the best of my abilities and it says yahoo and MSN are both enabled. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Virus scan comes back clean.

    Delete all your Yahoo stuff and then download it fresh and reinstall it.

    Bummer. I was afraid that was going to be suggested. How does one delete the entire program?

    Go to the start menu, and select control panel, add/remove programs, and find yahoo messenger, select remove, and it is gone. Might want to save your contact list somewhere first

    Your probably low on memory when that happens. Hit alt, ctrl, del and see what programs are running. You really only need explorer if that is your browser, systray (do not delete), and your internet provider. I would imagine if your using firefox that should appear as a program running instead of explorer.

    If each time you reboot and these other programs are running in the alt, ctrl, del. box then you haven't removed them from your task bar. The alt, ctrl, del. is just a temporary fix.

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Sometimes you should unplug your computer when you turn it off. When the light goes out in the back then you know it is off, at that point you can replug your computer and turn it on.
