By john0406 ·
Can someone tell me what these programs are that boot you off Yahoo messenger, how to keep them from doing it, and if there's anyway to get back at the idiot doing it?

Most folks these days are using YTunnel to block booters when using Yahoo Messenger. I've used it in the past, and it seemed to work pretty well. YTunnel is written & distributed by Chet Simpson and can be found at his site, YTunnel Pro.

One of the best ways to avoid getting booted off Yahoo Messenger is to not use it at all, and opt for one of the third-party clients instead. Information about these clients can be found on the main page of this site, under 'Chat Programs'.

The version of the program offered for download below was reasonably effective with Messenger 5.5 used on any Windows platform, but it hasn't been well-evaluated for use with Messenger 5.6. Unzip it to it's own folder, or any folder you find it convenient to keep your programs in. Go to the folder where the program was unzipped, and right-click the program icon. Select "Send to Desktop as Shortcut". Start the program by clicking on the shortcut. Right-click the icon in the systm tray, near the clock, to adjust the function of the program.

Tunnels will work good, but I also found that a code that you can put in the filter1.enc file would stop the boots.

What I am looking for now is a booter program to boot those idiots booting people. Couldn't find any freeware, most want atlease $18. if you find any freeware for that please let me know thanks.
