All comments about ymmapi.dll:
JeNiLa it is spyware designed by yahoo
it is the MAPI file to allow access to yahoo email from the email button on your browser
mary wilson only when i go to check my yahoo mail this comes up and i can't check my mail
dan it deletes the short cuts
Rajveer Sangha It is and extremely verstile dll, basically an activex control that makes yahoo mail ur default mail client. Further one of its public methods, OpenURL is used to open web sites and a lot more. Its not a spyware at all
Just a program to get mail directly from windows applications e.g. the mail button in IE
Abe Lets you use your yahoo email account as your default e-mail client.
It's off my computer and Now I can't access email MSN
keeps showing up as error
Pstoff.about.spyware JeNiLa is right - this program is a spyware loader designed by Yahoo. I think these people who rated it as safe work for yahoo.
cherrylotus i cant delete it thus i belive it is a pest!!! and i cant run yahoo no more it keeps program has already exited blah
Murph Yahoo messenger crashes at startup. Yahoo uninstaller crashes on startup. I broke down and deleted the files manually, but cannot delete ymmapi.dll file no matter what I do. I don't use yahoo mail either.
Maria if you cant remove it, just drag it and take it to desktop, then delete the folder it was in, and then go to your desktop and delete it
Jimbo MCSE It is a link to a default mail client if you do not have Outlook  See also: Link
I think that when a coorperation such as yahoo or any other organization feels its their right to install and run stuff on MY system without my knowledge or concent, that they should be systematically dissmantled and the CEO's shot to make an example
cooper const co this file opens a port for remote assistance for any hacker that knows how to use it.to gain gontrol over your computor and shredd its hard drive by adding a shredder file to your locals and temps, very hard to get rid of as well, virus scan wont find it because it is covered by a yahoo name
to remove it search for yahoo and remove everything until you get an error mesage saying cannot delete this folder because write protected. just rename the folder and delate
mahesh gelani it hides the message window of the yahoo messanger and all message u type is invisible to ourself
Ryan You can remove it with norton. Quarantine the file using norton, then delete it while it is quarantine.
dave I just think yahoo needs to stop putting bars of noobies pc's
Benny Profane very useful add-on for IE designed for Yahoo Mail users
Isabel Para eliminar el archivo, entrar en Opciones de Internet, dentro del menu Herramientas. Programas y Administrar complementos. Deshabilitar complemento llamado YMailAttach Class. El archivo se podr eleminar despues.
Datdeus Yahoo spyware loader
Finland it wont let me delete it. i knew it was spyware....
Twizted It's not spyware. This file is used for Yahoo! Messenger.  See also: Link
Robert Rand, Deerfield Beach Fl. One thing I forgot to tell you, you must unregister it from your windows registry. To do this, go to a command prompt and enter regsvr32 ymmapi.dll /u , and click enter. Robert
Robert Rand, Deerfiled Beach Florida This dll allowed non client based yahoo mail (online) to be your default mail application. When installed, it show up as a listbox choice when you select tools, Internet Options, Programs, E-mail, in internet Explorer. This code is now embeded in the Yahoo Messenger, which you have to install if you want your Yahoo email to work from within web pages. If you leave it on your computer, it will mess up Yahoo mail and Yahoo messenger. You can delete it from the folder its in by first deselecting it in IE, then reboot your machine. It is now inactive and you can delete it. Robert.
It is definitely bad. Anytime I try to type a adress in it opens it up in yahoo search.
Chris It is NOT spyware, some people here say it is. I made several spybot check-ups and advanced spyware of all kinds, also advanced virus scans, always I am told " No treads".
