I can't receive my messages. The little bar that pops up that tells me I have a message but when I click on it, it goes away. I try looking for it and then I'm told I have no messages. Not to mention that it's slow and freezes up. I almost feel as though I've downloaded a virus by downloading messenger because now my computer seems to act weird.

Try to follow these few steps, & you should be okay =)
1) Go to "Run". You can click the start bar, then type "run" in the search bar, the application should pop-up right after that.
2) In the "Run" interface, type "regedit", & a window says "Registry Editor" should come out after that.
3) Okay, now pay attention because this is where we get the tricks done. In the "Registry Editor" panel, look for "HKEY_CURRENT_USER". Expand it.
4) From there (expanded HKEY_CURRENT_USER) & now on, expand all the way according to these order: --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows --> CurrentVersion --> Internet Settings --> Zones.
5) In "Zones", there should be consist ONLY with "0,1,2,3,4" accordingly. Anything besides those numbers, DELETE it. Close the "Registry Editor".
6) Now you can try opening your YM. & tadaaaa!... It's back to normal.

In receiving messages, it will automatically pop out on your screen. If you are not logged in, you still can read messages that been sent to you via offline messages which will automatically pop out the moment you logged back in again.
Before we can determine what happen to your sent/received messaged, We have to check your archive preferences. If you haven't set this up before chances are your old send/receive messages are deleted once you logged off from yahoo messenger.
First Step, go to Messenger Menu -> Preferences->Archive. Make sure the option Save all messages is ticked. If not, this means you old messages are gone and please tick it on.

Click OK and you're done.
So as not to leave you in the dark, let's also define these three options:
"Displaying a dialog box" is the Windows dialog box that pops up
notifying you of new mail. "Showing an icon in the system tray" is the
envelope that appears when new mail arrives. "Showing a message in the
bottom right corner of my screen" is the box that comes up giving you
the subject of the message or how many emails.
Additionally, you can customize all your alerts in a very similar
manner: Select the alert you want to change then check or uncheck the
boxes as desired. You can even change what sounds you hear.
Hope that helps take some of the aggregation out of your computing experience!\
