Yahoo messenger with Vista SP-1

I am having trouble with my messenger. My games on my messenger do not work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled until I am blue in the face. I need technical help. I would like to play pool once in awhile with a friend of mine and we cannot play due to the fact I get this big white field with a small box containing an x in it. I'm really getting fed up with it. I keep getting "object doesn't support object or page" and asks me if I want to continue to run scripts o n this page.

Come on now, enough is enough.

Will someone please help me?

    Thank you. I know that this doesn't work . I've tried downloading and installing older versions to no avail. Is the Vista SP-1 supposed to work with anything. I've even tried the plug-ins to go along with it and my computor will not recognize it. I still need help.

  • LOTLKOTL Oct 06, 2008

    You are so kind to work with me on this thing. I'm at my wits end.

    I downgraded to Yahoo Messenger 7.0 to see if this would help and I got my game listings back yet I still have no games. All I get is "Application Not Found." I just looked it up in my yahoo program and that is what I am still getting. I've tried the plug-ins before as well and they don't work either. Do you think it is the SP-1 itself or have I lost something from my computor?

    And again, I really do thank you for the help.

    I have both Java and Flash Player. I've even thought about removing and reinstalling them but I have kept them current. Is there any kind of download available to fix this that you may know of.

I can not install yahoo messenger 10

You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes before repairing

Re-start your computer and download Yahoo Messenger from here.
