    thats a good question because as far as i know when you download the newer version it overwrites the old version maybe contact tech help right at yahoo and see if there is a way to do it that would be your best avenue for advise go right to the source

Hey Eric you told me to reinstall yahoo messenger.How do i reinstall yahoo messenger?Do i have to delete yahoo and reinstall it again?

You should be able to go to and type download yahoo messenger in the search box. Download it and install it. If it requires that you delete the old one it will tell you to delete it. I'm betting that it will delete the old one for you, that way it saves your userid, password, friends, contacts, etc. If you delete it, you will lose all that.

Yahoo messenger has stopped working. unable to gain access

Yahoo messenger relies on IE to operate it even if you have another browser set as default, so keep your IE up to date.

Make sure all your support software is up to date - this is necessary to run Messenger but not downloaded with it

Again, choose the version for IE if given the option
Use the links on this page to check and update

After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
You will have 2 versions if you have 2 browsers so be careful not to delete them.
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions

If you have Vista check for a solution in your Control Panel > Classic View >> Problem reports and solutions
