Yahoo Messenger Error's!!

Hi,

How many of us have seen Error Message's like :-

1. YPager.exe
2. Sorry for Inconvenience
3. Window's Unable to Download Yahoo Messenger

The Most Common Reason for the First and Second Error Message is Software Corruption. Whenever you see Error Messages 1 and 2, it always indicate there has been a recent change in Registry.

You could Read a Nice Article for the same :-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Registry

Now,

The ONLY way to fix this is to REINSTALL Yahoo Messenger.

Go to :-

Start > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall Program > Select Yahoo > Uninstall

The Above steps are Generic One.

Then, Reinstall the Yahoo Messenger.

Now,


For Error 3, Make sure that you do have a Working Internet Connection and you are able to download other files. I have seen issue with Yahoo Messenger with Slow Connection.

Download the Yahoo Messenger from the Below Sites than from Yahoo Messenger Site :-

http://www.download.com

As of now, let me provide you with a Link from where you could directly Install Yahoo Messenger ( Link working right now ) :-

If Problem still Persists, Seems that there is a Virus/Adware/Spyware problem. It could also mean a problem with Windows.

In that Case, Either Restore or Reinstall Your Windows.

Thanks!!

Yahoo! Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.


Welcome to FixYa! Are you using window blinds or alienguise or some other window enhancement program? Examples are programs that add extra buttons like transparency and keep always on top or change the look of the windows in anyway (not including standard XP themes), if so disable it and yahoo should work.
Do a search on http://www.wackyb.com for window blinds as it's discussed there often :)

This is sometimes a flash issue, make sure you have download and installed flash from Internet explorer (not any other browser)

i deleted my old yahoo messenger from the computer and now i am trying to install a new one but its not working, every time i try to install it, it says(yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. please check firewall settings and retry.) what should i do???please help me


the error message is clear, for some reason your computer is set to block the Yahoo messenger link.
here is what you can do: (for windows XP)
1. open Control panel
2. click on Security Center
3. click on Widows Firewall
4. click on the Exception tab
5. check if you have Yahoo Messenger there:
a. if not: click on Add and paste the follow: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
b. if it's there- make sure it is the same as C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\YahooMessenger.exe
if it is the same- click on Delete to remove it and try to install again.

application error occuring to install or remove yahoo massenger?


You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Check
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
