I've spotted it in numerous recently installed xp systems with yahoo messenger not installed, where browsing with IE didn't work anymore, start up in safe mode - everything works again. Kill the service starting up with msconfig - all ok. try to clean the registry -next boot, no internet, all registry links back malakia

Some set a registry setting with "ypager -quiet" which caused Yahoo Messenger to open then immediately close again before I could login. Jav

It appears that someone is using it to hack my system. My CPU usage hits 100% about every 5 seconds. When I remove them from my buddies list everything went back to normal but I have to block a "remote system trying to connect thru Ypager" when I start up...Man Wake up Yahoo! pluMmet
I have a Yahoo email account, but I've never installed their messenger, and yet I see it in my registry, so it's probably bad. I never use any type of instant messaging anyway so I don't need it
When I deleted the ypager in Task Manager, my Yahoo IM session terminated. When I logged back into Yahoo IM, it returned. So, tt appears to be used by Yahoo IM. Rob

It's Yahoo Messenger..normally. Make sure you don't have any viruses on it, and that it's actually Yahoo Messenger, and that you want to run Yahoo. Please Note, if you want to TURN OFF YAHOO MESSENGER, you can do that by going to preferences and telling it not to Automatically Log In When Windows Starts geoff

I didn't reolize what was doing it untill I got a firewall set up and found this program being blocked more than 37 times in the first 5 minutes!!! I am worried that I have put myself at risk now. I will be doing further research adn will probly find a way to delete it from my system. Even though I use yahoo IM. It is NOT a friendly program. Andromeda

ypager.exe - the main process belonging to the Yahoo IM application, an Internet messaging program. A non-essential process. Disabling or enabling this is user preference VJ
My messenger doesn't work because it can't find YPAGER.exe How can i download it? REDNIC DARIAN
Not able to open Yahoo Messager Inspite of downloading it 5 times. No short cut appears on the desktop. DP Daniel
apparently when i used ms.config to clear out a lot of junk and with the registry it continues to tell me i'm missing a component and no longer may use the messenger. that is fine also, you know if you just use a router with a double fire wall that keeps a lot of hackers out. I did not say all for some are so hip. the more junk the more problems Raffi Denson

Yahoo Messenger helper exe, can be stopped/disabled safely Andy
that is really yahoo messanger, try shutting it down your system will back to normal again .. i dont know ypager take up so much cpu usage Mbeeee
I have been bothered by this constantly popping up from a worm warning from Symantec or Norton Anti-Virus Software. If you run this Software..Open and go to 'Options Tab' the on the left select 'Instant Messenger Then untick the checking by Yahoo. Appy and close. This I believe stops the annoying option 'permiting' ever moment' or Blocking. I believe Yahoo is using this to check if the user is active. Could be a setting thing. Don't think its being used malicously.
It is the service for Yahoo Messengerr located in C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger Maur

this is very interesting and i would like to down load yahoo messenger . Mobeena
I found out that my ypager.exe was trying to find out my mouse movements and keyboard presses. When I typed something it appeared after a slight delay as if it was my mouse and keyboard moves were getting recorded somewhere. I installed ZONE ALARM. Restarted the machine and on starting ypager.exe immediately got the message that ypager was trying to get keyboard presses and mouse clicks, which it usually does. What we do not know is that whether it records even when we are not using the chat client. If so, and if it then sends everything somewhere on it's own, it'sDOOM for the ecommerce indus.

there are a lot of bugs and yahoo dosent pay attetion .they made it why wont they fix it. lizzard

i want to download developer's download network plugins, so to get started (as what the instruction is), i downloaded SDK, unfortunately, ypager.exe does not exist, i have to find the path or else request will be denied.
If you don't think you have Yahoo Messenger, but do have this program, it may come with ATT or SBC brand of DSL, since Yahoo co-operated with them. Not neccessary, but not likely to be harmful unless masquerading or in conflict; takes up some resources automatically Jeff
Zone alarm warning would pop up that this program is able to log keystrokes, etc. I deny it using Zone Alarm and then yahoo messenger continues to open. If it is such an integral part of yahoo messenger how come it was not denied altogether? george

It is the exe for yahoo messenger. But if you have a good firewall you do not need to let it act as a server or accept connections from the net.
Zona Alarm probably wants us to alert that Ypager.exe is able to get keyboard presses and mouse movement. Obviously that is essential for it to function. For those who are suspicious about it they can block it.  See also: Link Webmaster

Depending on the process, it can be in your startup (start run msconfig startup) and be malicious, a keylogger. You can move it from there and disable it. Stuff like that is why I don't use Yahoo! messenger. It is always full of bugs that aren't updated. Captain Hooker
Users please use AVG Free basic protection, it's a trojan back door, please remove it! I will post info tomorrow  See also: Link Kyle Moore
