How to fix text cannot see on yahoo messenger?

Because of the virus we usually encountered this problem in yahoo messenger.. if we reinstall Ym ,the problem is still there..formatting PC is stressful and all of our files must be deleted...here is the solution for that..

To resolve this, open a registry editor (click Start, click Run. On the Open box, type: regedit and then press Enter). Navigate to the following key: hkey_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft\ Windows \ Current Version \ Internet Settings \ Zones

There should only be 5 items there, numbered 0 to 4. If you see a different one, especially if you see items that shows up as box, try deleting it. (Backup your registry first). If you were able to delete that extra item, this might fix the bug, and you will be able to see the chat messages again in yahoo messenger..

Everytime i sign in to my YM(yahoo messenger) it only works for 5 seconds then after that this is the msg. that i got Yahoo! messenger has stop working. A problem caused the program to stopworking correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. well its been 3 days now and still i dont receive any solution yet. what really going on. thank you very much.

Do a thourough scan on your PC for virus, spywares, etc....with your security programs (update the security database first before scaning) and remove any "dangerous or unwanted programs" that might be installed on your PC without your knowledge. After the clean up, then,

You can update your Windows thru' Windows Updates, uninstall YM and download the latest YM version, @ http://messenger.yahoo.com/ and reinstall YM.

Hope it helps

Its virus infection on yahoo messenger.
Uninstall completely any yahoo softwares including yahoo messenger from your computer.
Acquire or download fresh installer and reinstall on your pc.
If your computer is networked. Separate first your computer from other network PC when reinstalling your yahoo softwares.
If that did not work, you have already reinstall the yahoo messenger and still cannot see the message on your ym window.... then I suggest you reformat your PC.

are you using the latest YM? why not try downloading the latest YM but before installing it, uninstall some unwanted programs or those that you dont use anymore...free some disk space.

then try installing the latest YM now.

hope this helps.
