Hi,
If you are using windows XP please remove the program from its registry as follows-:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Yahoo! Messenger


Try downloading again and I am sure you will be.
Please let me know as wel.. Thanks

Yahoo messenger doesn't show the chat rooms on my desktop


Possible Reasons & Fixes:

-->If you are in the UK, and use the UK Yahoo! Instant Messenger, you will not be able to see the adult roomnames, or user roomnames. This is in order to protect people, and children against obseen activities that may go on in these rooms.
-->Log out and close the program. restart PC and log in again then try to open chat room. if rooms won't load, there should be a connection problem from the server into your PC.

--> In your Messenger window:
1. Click on Messenger.
2. Click on Preferances.
3. Click on General.
4. Check box says: "Open web links in new browser window."
5. Check box that says: "Automatically sign me in when I click on a Yahoo link in Messenger."
6,.) Click on Apply.
7.) Click on OK.

If that does not work, you might also need to check these settings:
1.) On your Internet Explorer toolbar, click on tools.
2.) Click on Internet Options.
3.) Click tab that says Programs.
4.) Near the bottom Where it says Default Web Browser, make sure Internet Explorer IS the default web browser.
5.) Click on Apply.
6.) Click on OK.

Regards
George

Can't use the built in cam for Yahoo Messenger.


Some webcams have this problem in combination with Yahoo.
I was able to fix this by using a program called SplitCam. I allows for webcam sharing, but it also is compatible with most webcams. You can install it and then use that as the video source in Yahoo.
I found a nice description about using SplitCam for this.

Hope it works for you.

My yahoo messenger did not opend


Go Start,Control Panel, Add/remove Programs. Click on Messenger,click remove. This should reinstate the older version. If not, Reboot and download it here;

Yahoo 8.1: http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html

9 messenger is in Beta (testing) form and not working well. Stick to 8.1 until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems.

Flash player 10 Does have conflicts,and 9's latest update 9.0.124.0 Can have conflicts with Yahoo and
is causing some Yahoo services to not load.use the link below for a download of Flashplayer #9.0.115.0 should work as it's older then last update. You have to remove the present flash player,(add/remove programs in control panel). reboot then download the older version.

after downloading this file, you make sure you are connected to the internet, bcoz the install is an online install..

Downloading Programs with the new Windows Vista


You need a special version for Vista if it's not what you tried to install already. It can be found here:

http://messenger.yahoo.com/windowsvista.php

Vista also pops up annoying prompts to confirm every system change, which may cause problems. This is caused by User Access Control, and I can walk you through temporarily disabling it if you can't get the above version installed straight away.
