  • kazvorpal Oct 30, 2008

    When I run Yahoo Messenger 9 (release), I invariably get a popup saying "Yahoo! Messenger has stopped working" (yes, I have Vista, and yes, the instability and memory waste is not worth the clearly improved user interface).


    If it's of any use, the exception code is c0000005

    have you tried with the virus protection off?

    and are you using messenger for vista operating system?

    which can be found here if you don't.

  • jason May 11, 2010

    was your virus protection on durring the installation?

    And what operating system are you running?

  • jason May 11, 2010

    do you have your virus protection on while trying to install?

    what operating system are you running?

    make sure your PC meets these minimum requirements:


    • Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP operating system
    • Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 or later
    • Pentium II 233 Mhz or better (500 MHz recommended)
    • Minimum 64 MB RAM for Windows 98 and ME & 128 MB RAM for Windows 2000 and XP
    • Minimum 30 MB needed to install

    To use additional Messenger features, such as the calling features, Webcam, and Yahoo! Music, your PC needs:


    • Windows Media Player version 7 or higher
    • Webcam—Messenger compatible
    • A microphone, sound card, and speakers or a headset

Hi , i also had the same problem, but i was able to fix it. dont know if its only for a while.
what i did was i uninstalled then installed Yahoo messenger . . then right click on the yahoo icon and select administrator . then the YM will pop out but still you cannot log in .

i then started to update my norton antivirus and then after it had installed the updates, restart your computer. after that dont know how it happened but it was fixed. i can log in
