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...

Another method is to deny the permission for Yahoo Updater in the Firewall (if you are using one).

Hey guys!!!

I am very sorry to say this..
But already @Raasm287 has started having side-effects...

If u do have it as well, plz just revert the rename back to yupdater.exe

I am sorry if this causes any trouble :oops: :oops: :oops:
