I cannot delete several of my messenger contacts even though i deleted from my mail address book. when I try to delete them, I get the following error message: The last Address Book operation did not...


Seems Error Code 40402 pops up when trying to remove them while in your Yahoo Instant Messenger list first.

Glitches and Updates!!! Here's a work around though.
You will need to go to your Yahoo Email Account and delete the contact's name there first.
1. Click Contacts from your Email page to open your list of Contacts.
2. Go to the one you wish to remove and check the box next to it.
3. Go to the top of the list and click the Delete button.

Go to Yahoo Instant Messenger, right click the name and select Delete from the drop down menu.

I cant open my yahoo messenger


hi friend,

It could be several problems. Yahoo is having a lot of problems and it is affecting a lot of people in different ways. My problem was Vista and IM9 did not work well together. I switched to IM8 and I am not having any problems now. You might want to go to their messenger website to see if you can figure out your problem.
IM help website
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng…
If you need to download older version go here
http://www.oldverision.com/program.php?n…
You need to Uninstall it completely so you can get a clean install.

Now when you Uninstall not all of the yahoo messenger files are deleted from your Program Files, so if the problem you are having is caused by a corrupted file then the problem will still be there when you install it again.

So what you need to do is Uninstall messenger then go to your Program files and delete the yahoo folder.

To Uninstall you need to click on the Start button(the one on your task bar) then go to Control Panel then to Add/Remove Programs, find yahoo in the list and click on it then on Uninstall.<< this is for XP

To Uninstall in Vista click on start then Control Panel then on Uninstall a Program in the new window find yahoo click it to Uninstall it.

To find and delete the Yahoo folder click on the start button in your task bar then on My Computer then C: drive then Program Files then right click on the Yahoo folder and Delete it. It's a good idea to reboot your PC now to make sure it's all gone out of your system.

Now you can go here > http://messenger.yahoo.com/ and get the 8.1 yahoo messenger.
I suggest staying away from the 9.0 beta as the 8.1 version is more stable and does not have the bugs the beta version has!!!
Hope this helps!!! thanks for using fixya regads, sivaranjini

Cant install yahoo messanger


I was going to say it is yahoo 9. You'll need to acquire the full version from some download site. You also need to check onot he version you have currently to know if it is full or beta version.
If you provide me an email i can send you a link to full version download.
Alternatively, you can run the installation as Administrator. Right click on exe file and choose Run as Administrator. That will enable you to run it will admin privillage.
Keep me posted.
