    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

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
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

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

I want to delete my id from others yahoo messenger list. Please help!


unfortunately you can't do that unless you know their account and manually doing it. Instead, I suggest you to create a new account. That way you can manage who to add and not add the person on your yahoo list. To create another account just click here https://edit.yahoo.com/registration?.src=fpctx&.intl=us&.done=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com%2F

restart your pc


go to www.old version yahoo messenger .com get an older version 8.1 works the best

Yahoo messenger not showing typing text


You may or may not have Internet Explorer as your default browser but it still plays an important part in the operation of Yahoo Messenger either way.
For this reasson you must keep it up to date and the support software for IE as well.
Update Internet Explorer
Check your scripting settings

To enable scripting:Internet Explorer8

Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
Restart IE

Still not working ? Update support software. This software is essential for the operation of Yahoo Messenger but it is not included in the Messenger download.

use the links on this page to help update software.

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng…

After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions

Keep your software up to date by using an update checker

http://www.filehippo.com/updatechecker/

If you are chatting from Yahoo All New Mail - try going into Yahoo Classic Mail via the options tab.If its OK you may have a resolution problem - The screen resolution for All New Mail should be a minimum 1024 x 768 pixels.
Right click on a blank area of your desktop and select 'Personalize'.
Select 'Display Settings.Make a note of your resolution setting. Ramp it up if required.
If this presents a problem go to 'Options' in Yahoo Mail and tranfer to Yahoo Classic Mail.

Try disabling Norton just long enough to do a check and see if if your scripting functions OK.You may have to grant Yahoo full access

I cant see my chat messages on ym


This seems to be a bug on a particular version of yahoo messenger. It's either you upgrade or downgrade to a particular version.
Just play around by installing another version of Yahoo Messenger.
Get older versions from this link.
Latest version can be downloaded here.
Hope this helps
