Yahoo messenger window, then contacts, then message archive. Then highlight the name of the person you want to delete and click on the red X.

Go to the 'Preferences - Archive' after that make sure the option is chosen : 'Yes, save all my messages,, but clear them when I sign out'. with this your messenger will erase all your messages on a daily basis.Also, try clicking on the button 'Clear Archive Now'."

Its very simple. Just Open your Yahoo messenger, login with your ID and Password. Now Go to Messenger from the Menu Option, it will open a dialog box. Now select Archive option from the Category at the left side. Here on the right hand side you'll see a Option of Clear Archive Now. Click on it and press Ok. Thats it !!!

As you know everything is in the archive files. To delete the files and make it not recoverable, a software is used, known as File Shredder. Download it and shred the archive files and it will not be recovered...
