    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'."

    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...
