Yahoo Messenger 9

I can not get Yahoo Messenger to load. It will not boot up and when I try to uninstall it freezes up and a message says it is not responding. I got it to work once but there were all these error messages about no script on this page. What do I do?

    Yesterday for the first time since it's been installed, Yahoo IM wouldn't launch when I clicked on the shortcut.



    I tried it several times, no dice.



    So I went to the Vista programs window and tried to launch from there. Again no dice.



    I decided that it had a bug, ran Avast! and did a thorough scan, nothing.



    So I decided to uninstall and then re-install. The uninstall went fine.



    When I tried to re-install the program locked at 99% complete and won't
    move forward. I've rebooted the computer but the YIM window came back
    showing 99%. I tried to uninstall again but Vista won't let me do that
    until the program is finished running. It's running, but in neutral
    and doing nothing.



    What else can I do to either move the process forward or stop it and start again?



    Thanks.

I had the same problem with Yahoo Messenger 9. It was not opening whenever I clicked in the icon. So I tried to remove all the registry entries with Revo Uninstaller. But whenever I tried to install Yahoo Messenger 9 afresh, it use to halt at 99%.

This is what I did to resolve it.

I had recently installed a Firewall program (Zone Alarm Pro). I uninstalled this software and restarted the machine. You may be having someother Firewall programs which prevents proper installation.

Download and Run the Yahoo Messenger Set-up from the page - http://messenger.yahoo.com/

If you still can't get it working, you still have some firewall applications running on your machine.

A friend suggested I just do a system restore (you can do this on your control panel). It allows you to select a date in the past at which point the system is restored to that point. It doesn't affect documents, only programs. It worked a charm, no problems now.

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
