My yahoo messenger is locked 81003003


HI.......................

it has errors
Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version is not, But it's not working well either. 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; like text not showing,pictures not showing. It shuts down on Vista users , not allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is so buggy Yahoo is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/...
You need to remove version 9 completely 1st to Get version 8 to work.
Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Un install messenger 9 completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems with other Yahoo programs.
Download the newest 8.1 here http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym...
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.

Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel, then download the older version.
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Flash-Play...

Some people are losing signal,things fade out, freezing up or getting disconnected . This can be caused my running low on virtual memory! You can increase your memory by going to start button, settings, control panel, system, advance tab, performance, advance tab, virtual memory, change it, make it 1500 kb or higher, In both boxes, click apply then ok . This applys for all instant messengers,MSN, Yahoo,skype ect.

Yahoo messenger 10 crashes


Are you using the Windows Blinds program? This is a Windows OS skinning program, and there is a conflict between it and yahoo messenger. There is a simple fix for this. Exit Yahoo Messenger by right clicking Yahoo icon by your clock and choosing Exit. Then right click the Yahoo Messenger shortcut on your desktop and choose Properties. Click the Compatibility Tab, and check the box that says Disable Visual Themes. Click OK. Restart Yahoo Messenger.
If the above does not apply to you then be sure to exit yahoo messenger first, by right clicking the yahoo icon by your clock and choosing exit, before you do the following steps:First, clear out your yahoo cache. My Computer/ C: drive/Program Files/Yahoo/Messenger/Cache. You can delete everything in the cache folder. I am not sure of the path for Windows Vista.
Next thing to try is to change your connection settings. Go to top of YM and click on Messenger and then Preferences. Go to the Connections page and try these options, no proxies or no network detection (try one than the other). Click OK after choosing one. Yahoo Messenger will need to close to change the settings.
Do you have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed? The latest version is 10.0.22.87. If you do update this also you can uncheck the box for Google toolbar that is on the download page, it is totally optional. After the installation box pops up, close all browser windows before installing. Important: Yahoo Messenger relies on Internet Explorer so be sure that when you update Adobe Flash Player that you do it in Internet Explorer. If you also use Firefox you will also eventually want to run this same page in Firefox and check your Adobe Flash Player version but the one that matters for Yahoo is Internet Explorer.
Do you have the latest Sun Java? The latest version is Version 6 Update 14.After you install the newest sun java uninstall the old ones through add/remove programs. Well I hope something here is of help to you. Please remember to choose a best answer and give feedback. I would also love to hear which of these solutions, if any helped you.

I've downloaded the newest version of yahoo messenger, but am repeatedly recieving error reports, and have sent the 'report to windows' support several times. I am still unable to open, use or sign in to...


whats your operating system... if its vista then you might have to run it in compatibility mode... and/or as administrator... you can do this by uninstalling yahoo messenger and then before install right click on the file and select properties...

next turn off your firewall... just to see if thats an issue...

and go for it...

if this happening in windows 7 then do the same and if it keeps happening then you will have to wait for an update...

but my advice to you is this... if unable to run latest version of yahoo messenger... your best bet for the interim might be yahoo webmessenger...

Yahoo messenger error 81003016


HI welcome to fixya free solutions. you are getting this error because of connection error! try to go to messenger then connection preference, its on the top left of your yahoo messenger..choose connect directly to the internet then apply. mess 9 noted for this error.

Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version is not, But it's not working well either.Try using 8.1 "the newest before 9", until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 or older versions trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems; like text not showing,pictures not showing.Chat rooms not found or opening. It shuts down on Vista users , not allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is so buggy Yahoo is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/…
You need to remove version 9 completely 1st to Get version 8 to work best.Left over files and fragments from using control panel to remove messenger can cause problems/conflicts with the new download.
Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Un install messenger 9 completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems with other Yahoo programs.
Download the newest 8.1 here http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym…
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.
And it works well with Vista.
Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here.
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Flash-Play…

Some people are losing signal,things fade out, freezing up or getting disconnected . This can be caused my running low on virtual memory! You can increase your memory by going to start button, settings, control panel, system, advance tab, performance, advance tab, virtual memory, change it, make it 1500 kb or higher, In both boxes, click apply then ok . This applys for all instant messengers,MSN, Yahoo,skype ect. And yahoo games.

Yahoo Messenger 9 Vista Installation Problems


Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.
http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/10/27/installing-90-on-windows-vista/

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
