Problems with yahoo messenger 9

I had the previous messenger, but decided to get the newer one. So I clicked upgrade to messenger 9 now on that window that comes up when you sign in. Ok sounds ok, right? well after i did that i clicked the appropriate things and downloaded the new messenger. Only thing is no matter how many times i download it and uninstall it every time i want to use it this window comes up saying "Yahoo! Messenger has stopped working. Windows is checking for a soution." and it looks as if it is loading. ok so when it finishes the bar like is is loading the messsage changes to " A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windos will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." I do not undestand i uninstall it and reinstall it and every time i try to use messenger now I am unable to. Please can someone help me with this.

Make sure you update all to the latest drivers via windows update

Make sure messenger is off, then go to regedit then open up HKEY CURRENT USER then open up SOFTWARE then open up MICROSOFT then open up WINDOWS then open up CURRENT VERSION then click on Internet Settings but dont open it just click on it then go half way down the list to find PROXY ENABLE,PROXY SERVER,PROXY OVERRIDE then click on PROXY ENABLE click modify binary and change from 0x00000000 (1) to 0x00000000 (0) then delete PROXY SERVER and PROXY OVERRIDE and there you go sign into messenger this has worked perfect for me hope it does for you.

or

It's either one of the two:

- Yahoo! servers are down for maintenance, the only fix would be to wait.

- Your connection preferences are wrong:
Messenger tab just above where you sign in and then click the Connection Preference option

Your contacts list is stored online, you can change versions and contacts transfer.Not sure what you mean by disconnected ( from what? yahoo,messenger,) Do this,
Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here; http://www.freecreed.com/ymsgr-archive.html
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
