I want to help a friend with a peculiar Yahoo Messenger problem. Recently, when he begins typing a message within Yahoo Messenger, the words and sentences do not appear as he types them. Instead, there is a 15 to 30 second delay and then, suddenly, the typed messages appear. I am not sure if there is any relationship there or not, but, he does mention the inception of the problem occuring around the time PowerPoint was installed on his pc.
Any thought or suggestions for correcting this situation will be appreciated.
