    Fake "Yahoo Messenger" Malware in Win7

    Running Win 7 Home premium Pics attached

    When I go to my yahoo mail account

    A little box pops up, bottom middle of the screen, about .5 X 2.0 inches.

    It says "Yahoo Messenger" in the top part
    Bottom half has blinking email address that says

    "babydollxxxx675" or
    "lisafatos637"
    or something similar

    The name blinks.

    I do NOT have the real Yahoo Messenger installed.

    Running Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes finds nothing,

    My IO Antivirus and Windows Defender show nothing.

    I searched the net, but haven't found something relevant to Win 7.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I also have an account with yahoo.There is NO threat.It's something new yahoo has come with.Along with the new e-mail program.If you do not know the ppl on the list,simply click on;BLOCK.For further info on this subject,I can only suggest you contact yahoo.
