Ive just installed windows 7 on my pc and I wanted to know where to paste my old yahoo messenger conversations... I installed yahoo but I think its another version of it and I just cant find the Profile...


Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete message history archive on your computer. You can copy it to the same location on another computer if you want to view it there. We've included instructions for Windows XP and Windows Vista users.
To locate your complete message history archive on Windows XP:
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

    %ProgramFiles%\Yahoo!\Messenger\
To locate your complete message history archive on Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32-bit):
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

    %LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\
To locate your complete message history archive on Windows Vista or Windows 7 (64-bit):
  1. Open the "Run" command: press Windows Logo+R on your keyboard.
  2. Copy and paste the text below into the Run command ' then click OK:

    %LocalAppData%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Yahoo!\Messenger\
Warning: Copying your Profiles folder to another computer overwrites any existing message history archive on that computer and it is replaced by yours. That overwritten message history archive will be permanently eliminated by this process. (Workaround: Backup that message archive first to a storage medium such as a CD ROM.)

Can't get webcam to work on messenger, it used to work, I must be doing something wrong do h I have to download a program


Reinstall you webcam drivers doing the following:

Unplug your webcam from your computer.
  1. Reboot your computer.
  2. Insert your webcam's manufacturer installation CD into the CD-ROM drive and follow the installation prompts.
Note: If the setup program doesn't start automatically within a few seconds, you need to manually start the installation process.
To manually start the installation process:
  1. Click Start from the taskbar in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
  2. Open the Run window and type d:\setup in the text area.
    Note: The "d" indicates the path to your CD-ROM drive. If your CD-ROM drive is located in a different path, you need to replace the "d" with the correct path.
  3. If you've downloaded the most recent software driver from the webcam manufacturer's website, run that installation program now.
    Note: Most webcam manufacturers maintain the latest webcam software drivers on the download or support areas of their website. Just download it and save it to your computer.
  4. Follow the instructions provided by the webcam setup program.
    Note: Plug in your webcam USB cord only when prompted. (This is usually done after rebooting your computer.)

Yahoo messenger stops immediately after it starts. I re-installed Yahoo messenger but th problem stays the same


Sounds like your support software needs updating - this software is not downloaded with Messenger but essential to running the program

1) Visit this page and select your product version using the drop box

2) Type into the search bar: crash and hit 'Search'
3) Browse the section for your problem and your OS and click on the link

I hv yahoo 10 but am not able to activate video calling or even pc to pc calling. how do i start them?


For video calling both parties have to have Messenger 10
For webcam chats your contact can have an earlier version than you
To initiate the video chat click the webcam icon
For webcam > Actions > More Actions - Invite to view

First of all you have to set up your webcam
Plug in your webcam and visit this site - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.
Do not proceed if the camera fails to work here, but concentrate on your webcam software / drivers

http://www.testmycam.com/

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger 10.

COMPATIBILITY WITH YAHOO MESSENGER

You MUST use Internet Explorer to visit this page, with your webcam plugged in, to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control. Make sure your webcam broadcasts on this page before moving on

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/webcam/mstacamtest.html

CONFIGURE SOFTWARE
Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

INTERNET CONNECTION
Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

TESTING
> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

SET WEBCAM DEFAULT
With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam Broadcast > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

AUDIO
Open Video and Voice - run through your default equipment and make a test call - click OK

PERMISSION OPTIONS
> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your default equipment selections and who you will allow to view you > Apply > OK

IN USE
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'.
Messenger 10:- > Actions > More Actions > invite to view my webcam. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( +1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts may need to configure their connection the same as INTERNET CONNECTION above (Ignoring webcam connected) if they get a "webcam not connected" message

Sometimes you may have to broadcast the 'small image' option from the 'Webcam' menu on the top of your image frames. This happens when one of you is down on resources -its like sending a large photo by email - its quicker if you cut the size down
you can zoom up to 200% from the same menu when the webcam picture comes through

Use the 'Always on top' option from the 'webcam' menu - or your image will disappear under the message window when you type a message

I am trying to download on a new computer at work yahoo instant messenger 10 it says to restart computer and thats been done several times


Your downloaded software might not be working properly. I am giving you a link that will help you to download registered software that you need.

http://www.warez-bb.org

create your account there and search for the software e.g, Yahoo Messanger 10 and download it from the specified url. Most of the urls are from rapid share, copy that link and paste it in new window or browser. when you open that link, you will have to press free user button and wait for a minute, after that this will allow you to download it.

Hello i have the same problem i lost my cd wat do i do?? how can i install it?


1)Ok, if drivers are the only thing you're missing, go to www.logitech.com, then at the top of the screen go to "support" then click on "downloads" and then use the search tools to locate your webcam model and it should allow you to download the original driver. 
2)If you would rather have a physical version, if you purchased the webcam from a large retailer, call the store, and explain your situation. They may be able to burn a duplicate CD/DVD for free or a very minimal change. I'm pretty sure logitech provides the same service, but you'll have a longer wait as they'll send the CD/DVD by mail.
I hope that helps

Cant load a map because Google has detected unregistered Antivirus 2009 copy on your computer. Google


It has been my experience that messages like these are really spyware programs the redirect you to their websites to purchase their junk. I would recommend running through you program listings (Add/Remove Software)and removing anything you don't absolutely need or don't know of. Google maps is a javascript application, so anything loading a javascript library that isn't from Sun Microsystems is probably suspect. Look for anything with java or jscript in the name, or, anything that doesnt have a description. Most are toolbar apps or search engines. Your Antivirus might pick it up as spyware and might not. So a thorough spyware check is heavily recommended.
