This is a great tip, esp. for those using Dial-up... Suppose you have an older version of Y!Messenger and it frequently reminds u to download the latest version and bugs you... Then, goto C:\ (Or watever drive ur windows is in...) Goto Program Files-> Yahoo-> Messenger-> Rename yupdater.exe and add some letter in front This is known to work miracles to the speed to Y!Messenger... This was successfully tested by @Raasm287... Go on... Speed up ur Y!Messenger!!! Cheers... Prav.
