I HATE YOU SO MUCH! I never wanted to install this ****! It came together with "Filezilla" and is messing my computer so much. Yahoo is so stupid. Please Google, do something about it. There's simply no way to uninstall it. No matter how many time I remove it from my Extensions, it always comes back!
