Wrong name display for Yahoo Web IM

Specs: Windows 7, 128 MB
I have a client that is using Yahoo IM and when she logs online to classic Yahoo and then clicks on mail...then clicks on a yahoo chat contact in the web browser and sends an IM it show's her IM name as "Me" however ...doing the same steps in the new Yahoo Mail (which I think is Yahoo 10)..it keeps displaying different names instead of "Me" or her name...is this a joke by Yahoo or would this be some kind of sign of a security threat or virus? If it is a threat how can this be rectified?

Yahoo has changed their user interface so many times it's hard to keep up. And just as an aside, not too long ago when someone complained about the new log in procedures, they were told, quite literally by Yahoo if they didn't like it, they were free to drop the service.

That being said, go in and clear out all the Yahoo cookies and log in again. Should be OK.
