Do yourself a favor and get rid of messenger 9, Yahoo still does not have it working correctly!! Do the following >>
You need to uninstall messenger Completely so you can get rid of the corrupted file that is causing your problem and get a clean install.
When you uninstall not all of the yahoo messenger files are deleted from your Program Files, so if the problem you are having is caused by a corrupted file then the problem will still be there when you install it again.
So what you need to do is uninstall messenger then go to your Program files and delete the yahoo folder. This will get rid of all remaining files especially the corrupted ones.
To uninstall you need to click on the Start button(the one on your task bar) then go to Control Panel then to Add/Remove Programs, find yahoo messenger in the list and click on it then on uninstall.<< this is for XP
To uninstall in Vista click on start then Control Panel then on Uninstall a Program in the new window find yahoo messenger click it to uninstall it.
To find and delete the Yahoo folder click on the START button in your task bar then on My Computer then C: drive then Program Files then right click on the Yahoo folder and Delete it. It's a good idea to reboot your PC now to make sure it's all gone out of your system.
Go here instead of trying to get it from the Yahoo messenger site >> http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.h...
I do recommend you get the 188.8.131.521 version as it is the most stable a bug free version of messenger !!
When you download it just save it to your desktop and then run the installer from there.
If you have XP just double click on it to start the install.
To install messenger on Vista you need to download messenger to your desktop. Then Right click on the installer and then click on "Run as Administrator" to get it to install correctly.
No, doing this will not make you lose your contacts and Yes if you do do this with out saving your archived files folder you will lose older messages.
If you'd like to save your archives, follow the instructions below to save them:
1. Click the "Start" menu and select "Run." If you do not see the Run command, then select Start > All Programs > Accessories > Run.
2. Type in "%ProgramFiles%\Yahoo!\Messenger\" and press Enter.
3. Right-click the "Profiles" folder and select "Copy."
4. Click the "Start" menu and select "Run" again.
5. Type in "%UserProfile%\Desktop\" and press Enter.
6. Click the "Edit" menu and select "Paste."
Once you've downloaded the new version of Yahoo! Messenger, you can paste the "Profiles" folder back to:
