Hi,

If I may offer another possibility.....nothing is wrong with your PC, your software, your installation, configuration, settings. It was working before.

Error Code 81003005, Pls try again a little bit later. Server maintenance? Give it a couple of hours or even overnight.

Alternately, open messenger Connection Preferences, normally would be No proxies. You can try all others and determine at which selection logging in could be accomplished.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,

Error code means your firewall is blocking it.
I think It's not yahoo, it may be your firewall settings on your own computer......

    It may also due to the following ......


    - Yahoo! servers are down for maintenance, the only fix would be to wait.



    - Your connection preferences are wrong:

    Messenger tab just above where you sign in and then click the Connection Preference option

    and i need you to look to this site...click here

    I examined your problem as you described it. It seems that you have a
    serious spyware in your system which causes the problem you described.
    I recommend you to check your PC with anti spyware tool immediately.
    Please note that standard antivirus may not solve this problem.

    Download True Sword - one of the best anti torjan and anti spyware
    tools in the Internet here (download is free):

    http://www.securitystronghold.com/true-s....exe

    Copy this link and paste it into your browser's address line,
    then press Enter. A download will start immediately. Then install
    True Sword and perform a full scan of your system.

    If you have any difficulties using the link above please go to

    www.SecurityStronghold.com

    and use True Sword link in the header of that site.
    There you will also find a description of True
    Sword and a full list of trojans, spyware, adware, keyloggers and
    other kinds of malicious programs it finds and eliminates.

    Don't hesitate contacting me if you have further questions.

    Good luck!

Errror 81003005 wont let me sign in to yahoomessneger


ok, in my case i remembered I tried using a proxy on internet explorer and forgot to put it off, so the proxy connection was still on even though the proxy was dead.

It now a proven fact to me that internet explore settings are linked to yahoo mess!
so make sure your internet explorer is working ok without proxy:

1. Open your Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools > Internet Options then click the Connections tab
3.Click the LAN Settings button and a new dialog box will open
4. At the new dialog box, look for the Proxy server checkbox, if this is checked, uncheck it.
5. Then your done, click OK button for the dialog boxes.
6. Try logging in to your Yahoo Messenger account.

good luck =)
