Hey, I could have a look with remote support. Im pretty confident that I can get it to work for you
You will need to open this link.
http://www.fastsupport.com/346570500

on the page click the link which says manually download the software, people have had problems with the automatic installer.

After that, it will ask for your permission and start up a remote support session.

    As there are 2 other experts before me, the session may not work when you get to see it, in that case, my email is nikoht at gmail dot com. or leave a comment here.

    Few things I can suggest:



    Uninstall all yahoo software from your computer

    start -> control panel -> programs (or add or remove programs)

    Then try again



    Right click the setup file and select run as administrator



    Download the software again, make sure its ment for your operating system.



    Disable antivirus and firewall during installation, optionally you may unplug your internet

    goto processes and stop all the processes which are not familiar to you running under your user name.

    and then try to remove all old versions of yahoo and remove all related folders in OS drive.

    and then now install new version

Everytime i sign in on yahoo messenger and i IM a friend it keeps telling me that i should take this IQ quiz and it says : I got 113....thought I was better than that" "I'm gonna take a shower now - try...


Yes its malware - do not click on the link or your contact list will be infected and all your contacts will be getting the same message

If you haven't clicked on the link just continue to ignore the message the same as the other one going around "Is this your photo?" and a link

If you want to run a check on Messenger - download the free Malwarebytes

It will deal with anything it finds without having to purhase the pro version

To keep safe do not open any links in Messenger without running a check on them

Messenger 10 social-view plugin error is occuring when signing on, then no other plugins will appear


Uninstall everything yahoo related from add/remove programs. Go to your C:, then Program Files and delete the yahoo folder from there also. Now go download ccleaner from www.download.com and run the cleaner, once that is done run the registry cleaner a couple times.

Try re-installing the latest yahoo from there. IF that failed also, you have one last shot that will work but it can be tedious a bit and a little dangerous so make sure to back up your files before proceeding. If the error still happens, do all of the above except for re-installing the yahoo. Now from the run command (Windows Logo Key + R), type: regedit <Hit ENTER>. Up top click on Edit and then click Find. Type: Yahoo! <Hit Enter>. Delete what it found and then press F3 to find the next yahoo! item. Delete everything it finds till there are no more matches found. Close the Regedit and reboot the pc. Now re-install the latest Yahoo Messenger and the problem is gone. I have done this several times for clients and this fixes it 100% of the time. Cheers!

Above the Yahoo! Answers logo is Help. Click it. Once it loads, click the Yahoo! Help logo, this will bring you to the main help page. Click on messenger, then the version of messenger you're trying to download.
Once the page loads, up at the top on the bar it says Contact Us. Click it. Write to Yahoo! Customer Care.
