Now that is the most random thing I've ever heard about. I'd say you should reinstally yahoo messenger.

Does this happen with all password boxes or just yahoo ?

System possible compromised? Or friend had played with password software himself and forgot about it?? Check what software is running / installed and reinstall Yahoo as instructed.
