I am a frequent visitor of Yahoo! Chat and I like to go into chat through the Messenger program. However as of late someone has made a program that causes yahoo messenger to get Fatel Exception errors. Not only kicking you out of chat but making you have to do a hard boot as well. I was hoping that maybe someone out there would have an idea as on how to prevent this from happening, while i was in messenger. I have the sites that the people get the fatal exception program from, because when they load the program it provides a link to the site where they got it. I also have Black Ice as my firewall and have set the yahoo messenger to friends only and am still getting knocked off when they run the program. Any one have any suggestions? Thanks!
