About a week ago i downloaded the newest version of yahoo mail and IM...which i think was yahoo 9.0 It downloaded ok....but then in a few minutes my computer went bad....and i was getting a message that there was a windows file that my computer could not read and that i may have downloaded a corrupt file....I called my internet provider to see if they could help me...and the tech there helped me to a point where i could at least get into my computer and use my email....but all of the icons that i had on my computer have vaporized....so i cant use my printer....or really do anything else other than read the news and read my emails. I use foxfire for my search engine....So...i got my computer manual outadn found a System Restoration Guide....and followed those insturctions....but...it did not restore my icons on my computer screen.....The serial number on my tower is XAB5 510 02054. I have a gateway 504GR. I'm not very good with computers. Are you able to help me with this problem i'm having....??? I need the icons restored....

Do you have the taskbar going along the bottom of the screen?
If so, do you see the word desktop. close near where the time is?
If so, click on the word desktop. it should open up and show you all your desktop icons.

If not let me know and we will try something else.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My yahoo messenger is locked 81003003


HI.......................

it has errors
Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version is not, But it's not working well either. Stick to 8.1 until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems; like text not showing,pictures not showing. It shuts down on Vista users , not allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is so buggy Yahoo is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/...
You need to remove version 9 completely 1st to Get version 8 to work.
Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Un install messenger 9 completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems with other Yahoo programs.
Download the newest 8.1 here http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym...
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.

Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel, then download the older version.
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Flash-Play...

Some people are losing signal,things fade out, freezing up or getting disconnected . This can be caused my running low on virtual memory! You can increase your memory by going to start button, settings, control panel, system, advance tab, performance, advance tab, virtual memory, change it, make it 1500 kb or higher, In both boxes, click apply then ok . This applys for all instant messengers,MSN, Yahoo,skype ect.

I wanna download the old yahoo mail


Hello, I'm sorry but this is no longer possible. Yahoo has disabled the old mail to encourage users to continue with the newest version. You are only allowed to switch back temporarily if you have a slow connection.

i got this from yahoo, i also have a yahoo mail account. your question made me curious so i checked into it this is what i found. We have removed the "Return to Original Mail" link from the help menu as we're strongly encouraging all users to migrate to the newest version of Yahoo! Mail. We will continue to invest heavily in the latest version of Yahoo! Mail, further improving it and delivering more compelling features to our users.

We know that changing to a new interface can seem daunting, so we've done everything possible to make the transition easy. We have created help pages specifically for users who have recently switched to the newest version of Yahoo! Mail, highlighting differences that you may notice:http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/ymail/migrating/.

We hope you'll give this new version a try. It's our fastest version of Yahoo! Mail yet, with improved protection against spam and advanced features like in-line photos and videos.
