    I think your system is infected. Update your antivirus and run full system scan. Try to use some free antivirus like AVG, avast, etc. Also run some antivirus application like anti-spywrae and anti-malware programs.

    Which version of yahoo messenger you are using? If you are using any older version, get the latest version: Download Yahoo! Messenger 9.0. Download and install it and check if you are facing the same problem.

    I know it is very irritating. I had the same problem. But the solution is very easy. Follow the steps given below to fix it:
    • Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger
    • Right click on the yahoo messenger.exe icon (yahoo messenger logo)
    • Click on Properties
    • Then click Compatibility tab
    • In Display Settings, untick the 'Run in 640x480 resolution box'
