Are you saying that someone sent an instant message to you
via Yahoo! Messenger and that in that instant message,
there was a link that you clicked on, which in turn
installed and/or downloaded some kind of malware to your
computer? Is this what happened?

Please give more details on what exactly happened. Was
this a stranger or someone you knew?
