Question about Yahoo Messenger

Messenger not showing messages

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.

I can not see messages sent or received on yahoo messenger, though i can see what i am writing but once i press enter, there is nothing on top half of the screen. Also the person to whom I send messages...


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.

To sign in to Web Messenger, you'll need to disable the Pop-Up Blocker. Follow the steps for your browser:

For Firefox:

  1. When a pop-up is blocked:
    - You'll see a bar at the top of the browser window that says "Firefox prevented this site from opening a pop-up window."
    - On the right side of that bar, you'll see an Options or Preferences button.
  2. Click Options or Preferences ' select Allow popups for webmessenger.yahoo.com.
  3. Click Sign-in again.
    - You may need to reload the sign-in page.

For Internet Explorer:

  1. When a pop-up is blocked:
    - You'll see a yellow bar at the top of the browser window.
    - You'll see a message that says "Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional options click here...".
  2. Click on that yellow bar at the top of the browser window ' select Always Allow Pop-ups from This Site ' click Yes on the confirmation dialog.
  3. Click Sign-in again.

For Safari:

  1. You'll see a warning above the Sign-in button.
    - You won't see any other type of warning.
  2. Select the Safari menu at the top-left of your screen ' un-check Block Pop-up Windows.
  3. Click on Sign-in again

I used the yahoo mesenger i cant see send and recieve messages its all blank..


To send messages you just have to.
  1. Click ACTIONS on the top menu bar of your yahoo messenger.
  2. On the drop down menu under ACTIONS, click SEND INSTANT MESSAGE
  3. there you will be asked to choose between MY CONTACTS, click my contacts if the one you'll be sending a message with is on your yahoo list otherwise click OTHER CONTACT
  4. If you choose MY CONTACT, just click the contact you will be sending the message and click OK.
  5. If you choose OTHER CONTACT, on the box type in the messenger ID of the person you want to send an instant message to then click OK.
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.

Each time i got yahoo mail, my yahoo messenger pops up. i don't need it


  1. Open Yahoo! Messenger
  2. Click Messenger --> Preferences or CTRL+Shift+P
  3. Under category click Alerts and Sounds
  4. In the "Alert me when" box click "I receive email in Yahoo! Mail"
  5. Uncheck the boxes next to "Displaying a dialog box", "Showing an icon in the system tray" and "Showing a message in the bottom right corner of my screen". If you prefer not hear the pow alert as well uncheck "Playing a sound..."
  6. 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!\

Start-> Run-> CMD->Msconfig-> Start up tab-> Uncheck Yahoo Messenger-> Apply-> Close-> Restart the computer.
