Question about Yahoo Messenger
Recently downloaded the mesenger 9 program.
But for some reason any picture I try and put as my display picture doesn't work.
When I go back in just a black screen is displayed,
Also it wont let me change my display name to a nickname.
Anybody know how to solve this?
Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons
It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.
Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).
Trace the path
HKEY/CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons
The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.
Close the registry.

1. Your old Nickname in your friend messenger list contact detail is not under your Control, your friend can change old nickname of yours whatever name they like in contact detail, not automatic change if you change in yours YM , tested in YM V11. , just like your cellphone contact, friends can change whatever name they like name for call us. not under your control.

a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US.

just stay calm ...this was ( you probably already know ) a temporary issue from the yahoo tech crew...and it was from the changes that they made last month or so on the server ...if your problem its still actual ...just contact yahoo suport ..and let them know .....some I heard remain with this kinda problems after they messed up that server ...
anyway ..a solution is to make another account and import all your contacts...and thats all...sometimes they do not fix problems like this ....
