    maybe because you are forgotten to log out... then someone jammed your account... or maybe someone use keylogger so they can know your pass...
    Be sure to log out it always

    Their is few steps:
    Protect personal information. Don’t give out personal information when exchanging instant messages with unknown people.
    Other people using Yahoo! Messenger can see when you are online unless you change the Messenger preferences to ignore anyone not on your Messenger List.
    And most importantly using Yahoo Avatar. Its real very useful

    So far I havent had any problems. But you need to be careful online. Make sure you dont use the same password everywhere, dont give your passwords to anyone and install a good antivirus etc...

    yahoo is not allowed on any computer i own. it accesses areas of your pc it has no right to access. it is as bad as a virus to remove.
