Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Shuts down or locks up occasionally and sometimes it changes menus

It seems 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.

    My yahoo messemger keeps giving me problems and it logs me out at the time. I tried to download the program many times to get it going but I keep having the same problem.

    Thank you for your solution. The reintall has been done several times and it does not fix the problem. We are using version 7 on a PC XP operating system. We dont' run any other crazy software other than Microsoft office. We have the most simplicity set up, very basic network and nothing we've tried corrects the problem other than removing yahoo messenger altogether. Which is not option.

    Any other suggestions?

Yahoo Messenger automatically shuts down whenever i do video call

Please uninstall it and again reinstall it. This will definitely fix the problem, it's related to registry and in rare cases it the plugins problem. You can download the latest U.s. version from this link download. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Every time I log into yahoo messenger I get booted off shuts down

it's beacuse of the firewall settings that the Norton program has by default, try changing them.

it can be for 2 reasons 1.Lines are busy at that time. 2.You have an other yahoo messenger (eg Yah mes beta) so you should deactivate 1 of them
