This issue is related to some software conflict -
Uninstall the program, Run some registry cleaner
An install the program again
Avoid to use some similar programs in the same computer (like msn messenger and yahoo)

Yahoo messenger doesn't show the chat rooms on my desktop


Possible Reasons & Fixes:

-->If you are in the UK, and use the UK Yahoo! Instant Messenger, you will not be able to see the adult roomnames, or user roomnames. This is in order to protect people, and children against obseen activities that may go on in these rooms.
-->Log out and close the program. restart PC and log in again then try to open chat room. if rooms won't load, there should be a connection problem from the server into your PC.

--> In your Messenger window:
1. Click on Messenger.
2. Click on Preferances.
3. Click on General.
4. Check box says: "Open web links in new browser window."
5. Check box that says: "Automatically sign me in when I click on a Yahoo link in Messenger."
6,.) Click on Apply.
7.) Click on OK.

If that does not work, you might also need to check these settings:
1.) On your Internet Explorer toolbar, click on tools.
2.) Click on Internet Options.
3.) Click tab that says Programs.
4.) Near the bottom Where it says Default Web Browser, make sure Internet Explorer IS the default web browser.
5.) Click on Apply.
6.) Click on OK.

My laptop


Without knowing what program is causing this there isn't much that I can help with. The only other thing I can suggest is to uninstall messenger and then reinstall it. Perhaps trying a differn't version of it if the same dosen't work, you can find several differn't versions here.

Hi,
If you are using windows XP please remove the program from its registry as follows-:

Try downloading again and I am sure you will be.

Downloading Programs with the new Windows Vista


You need a special version for Vista if it's not what you tried to install already. It can be found here:

http://messenger.yahoo.com/windowsvista.php

Vista also pops up annoying prompts to confirm every system change, which may cause problems. This is caused by User Access Control, and I can walk you through temporarily disabling it if you can't get the above version installed straight away.
