Can receive msgs but cant send in AIM Pro

Best two options are to restore to a point before you ran the ACS tool or uninstall AIM and re-install. The communication is two way, so if its going one way its getting connected and passing through firewalls etc.
Either other option should fix the software problem causing it to be grayed out.

I tried what you send on the mail but with no results. I hope you know another solution for my problem and waiting for further response. Regards

Good Day Dr_Mossaeed!

If the first solution did not work, perform this next solution. And will see if the message you type or receive will appear at last.

On your computer..

Go to Start
Click Run..
Locate: HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Internet Settings > Zones >
You will see a number of folders numbered: 0 1 2 3 etc
Above these you might see another folder there, before that zero folder, with a box type character - delete that folder
Close registry editor window
Restart your computer to take effect.

If this will not fix it, try uninstalling the Yahoo! Messenger and perform again the procedure above before reinstalling the Yahoo! Messenger.

Dr_Mossaeed, if you still have clarifications please click the Add Comments button below and leave your message. In that way I can find easily your message.

Please do not forget to rate if this fix your problem.

I have AIM instead of AOL buddy list, won't let me send messages

When you login to AOL the buddy list is on the right hand side.

Unable to run messenger

Its a pity you chose to re-install - a simple toggle of the connections from 'Direct' to 'Proxy' was probably all you needed.
As for your current installation problem:-
You do not need to adjust your firewall for uploading Messenger
You need the following OS to support Messenger
Windows 2000 / XP / 2003 / Vista / XP64 / Vista64 / Windows7
If that is not an issue read on.

The problem is probably due to a mal-function of the uninstall software.The Yahoo Messenger uninstall software is notorious for leaving files and fragments behind creating conflicts with the incoming software
Close all programs when uninstalling / downloading and uploading.
If you tried to uninstall the old Yahoo Messenger program from the Control Panel and failed to back it up with a visit to the 'C' drive, you may have old software conflicting with the incoming software trying to share the same folder.
If you have Vista the whole Messenger folder should have been removed during the uninstall.
Start > Computer >> Local drive (C) >> Program Files >> Yahoo >> Messenger. - The Messenger folder should have been deleted and not seen. If the Messenger folder is still visible - delete it.

If you have a pre-Vista OS, the Messenger folder remains, and inside, only one sub-folder should be seen. This is the 'Profile' folder and contains all the message history. All other software should have been deleted.

Manually delete any other folders and files before moving on

If you have Vista you may be denied being able to delete folders - in this case you will have to disable the 'User Account Control'
Start > Control Panel (Home) > User Accounts and Family Safety > Add or remove user accounts > Continue > Go to the main User Account Page > Turn User Account Control On or Off > Continue > Uncheck control box > OK

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information.

Re-start your computer

Download Yahoo Messenger from here.
