Go you're Control Panel (from start menu). When the dialogue box opens, select:
"uninstall a program" under "Programs" Bottom left of screen (Control Panel Home).
Find Yahoo Messenger in the list (after it's finished loading).
Uninstall the program, then go to the following website and download Yahoo messenger again.
http://messenger.yahoo.com/
You're friends list will automatically be there once you log in to messenger. If (upon uninstalling messnger you are asked, "do you want to remove all files associated with this program?" select yes,or it will not install correctly the second time.)
Let me know if you need further assistance,

Cant sign in in yahoo messenger at mozilla fire fox


Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "Firewall with no proxies" option.

Select the correct Internet connection type and country from the pull-down menus.

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

The above configuration works in most situations. (However, if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the Voice feature.) If this configuration doesn't work, follow these steps:

Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "No network detection" option and then click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in again with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.
After this steps and this still not solve it. You can check and set your I.S.P and Proxy Server. here are the steps.If neither of the above options work (sorry), you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that requires you to enter its address. Follow these steps:Click the Messenger menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Connection Preferences."

Enable the "Use proxies" option.

Enter your firewall or proxy server's address and port number. Contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet service provider (if you're at home) to determine the correct firewall and proxy settings.

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Yahoo! Messenger will ask you if you want to sign in with your new proxy settings. Click the OK button.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password and click the "Sign In" button.

If you try all of the steps above and Yahoo! Messenger still can't connect, contact your network administrator, Internet Service Provider (ISP), or the person who initially set up your computer to ensure that your firewall and/or proxy settings are correct

Just set up an account last week and now I cant sign on


What you are experiencing is trouble connecting issues with Yahoo Messenger. It is easy to set up an account with yahoo messenger and it will let you sign in for a few days but if the Windows Internet Explorer installed in your computer is outdated then after a few days it will be impossible for you to sign in at Yahoo messenger.

The connection of Yahoo Messenger rely on the Internet Explorer of Windows. The best solution for your problem is to upgrade Internet Explorer with a newer version. The best to suggest is Internet Explorer version 8. It doesn't matter if you are using a different web browser. Just install Internet Explorer 8 and do not default it as your browser if you are using other web browser as your default.

After installing IE 8, the next thing to do is uninstall and reinstall your Yahoo Messenger. It will be better if you install YM version 10. After you have completely install it, restart your computer and sign-in in just a second. It will surely works.

After successful installation.. sign in at yahoo messenger and it will work...

Yahoo messenger is unable to download files needed for installation. Please check firewall settings and retry installation


Check your Internet Explorer. Basically, if IE is not connecting, messenger won't work. Don't ask me why.

For me, IE wasn't working because I had previously problems with a virus, a malware to be exact. It changed the proxy settings for IE. If this is your case, then go to Control Panel / Internet Options/Connections/ click on LAN settings, then un-check Use Proxy, then run IE again. When IE connects, your messenger should work as well.

Or, it is just because your IE is set to work offline. Uncheck that then.

Happy chatting/surfing.
PS. You can uninstall IE after that. :)
