    I cannot uninstall Yahoo instant messenger
    I cannot uninstall Yahoo instant messenger. I have seen the answers regarding going to the control panel and simply clicking on "yahoo instant messenger" . However, when I go to control panel there is no program titled "yahoo instant messenger" I do have a listing for "Yahoo browser services" but it is a very large file (120 mb) and I am afraid it contains more than the instant messenger software.

    Perhaps I should note I am signed up to Verizon DSL and that comes with Yahoo
    I hope you can help as I believe instant messenger is causing problems.

    Operating system is windows XP
    Thank you for any help you can offer.

    Yes, I did all the right steps but there is NO LISTING for Yahoo instant messenger under the add /remove populated list. That's the gist of the problem. I know how to remove a program but in my case there is NO LISTING TITLED YAHOO INSTANT MESSENGER!

    Go and redownload it, install it as normal and this should resolve your issue.
