    Another issue: My Yahoo messenger shuts down or locks up occasionally and sometimes it changes menus (the way the messages comes in, it goes from boxes on the bottom to a pull down menu) Also if I use my yahoo mail sometimes it locks up as well.

Thanks again. The restall hasnt' helped - tried it several times. We're using v7.0 on a pc with an xp operating system with a basic network. The only software we use in Microsoft Office. We don't have any other crazy software programs loaded. It's just a really odd recurring issue; hard to find a fix for...any other suggestions....thanks again - I love this service!

Try changing your password ....someone may be logging on as you.
otherwise its just a server glitch. I had the same when i have been in chat for a long time ... i believe it was malicious software causing my problem. be careful of links within messenger esp from other users.

I log into my yahoo e-mail account and then within 3 seconds it kicks me out and says to log in again???

Yahoo mail has chat activated and that's why Yahoo Messanger logs you out because you cannot have two instances of it running. To fix this, on Yahoo Mail screen, under Chat & Mobile Text, select Sign out of Chat and it will show I'm Offline. In this way it won't kick you out of Yahoo Messenger anymore.

Why is it my yahoo messenger cuts off at

I would say that this sounds like a classic case of improper install. I would uninstall it and reinstall it and if that dosn't work then contact your ISP to see if the internet could be checked!
P.S. change your password on your account cause the messenger will kick you off when your account signs in on another computer! YOU COULD BE HACKED!

Hi i log into yahoo messenger get kicked out as soon as i send or reaceve a instant message.Never happend till i updated to messenger 10.

Hey, try changing your password to something which no one will ever be able to figure out, after logging on from a different machine ...

also, after doing that, go to yahoo mail and sign out of chat from there, and then get back to messenger and check ...

see whether yahoo mail has been blocked by your firewall, if yes, unblock it ...

there might be a trojan in your computer as well, if so, use a good antivirus like kaspersky, bit defender, nod32 etc...

I get kicked out occaisoanlly

too many reasons for that issue

either someone else is using your yahoo address and that would show a message saying you are logged in another computer.

or someone is trying to BOT you by using a Bot program to kick you out of yahoo.

or maybe the internet connection is low and that might be the reason.

for the first reason you can change the password
for the second reason you can install a tunnel program to protect you from Bots.
the third reason you will need to check the internet connection and make sure its running without any problems.
