Like a Catholic priest in an orphanage, Yahoo has taken it upon itself to unrelentingly ravish itself on my machine. I installed Yahoo messenger, I turned off all the extraneous crap, but extraneous crap seems to reign supreme anyhow. I not have a Yahoo toolbar (turned off), painful popups on startup (now turned off) dozens of Yahoo games and options in my start menu, shortcuts in my taskbar, a new fucking menu on the top of firefox between Bookmarks and Tools (now removed), and god knows what else. How do I get rid of all this shit once and for all without manually disabling it one by one? As I said, I chose the install option without all the crap. All I wanted was the messenger. Wonder how much it would have installed if I said "please Yahoo give me your toys". Other than random venting, this thread has no purpose, but let this be a warning to the rest of you....I normally use Trillian, but wanted to use the share pics thing (which is pretty cool) so installed the full messenger. It's not worth it.
