Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Will not load correctly

I have tried several times (unsuccessfully) to load this program. I ceep getting the same error. "Incorrect command parameters" I have no idea what this means or how to correct the problem. At one time I did have yahoo messenger installed on this PC without problems but now cannot get it back. I have deleted and uninstalled every yahoo program on this PC and tried to start fresh but to no avail.

How can I run two Skype accounts on the same computer?


To use more than one Skype account on the same computer at the same time you need to start a new instance of Skype.
1.
From the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run (or press the Windows and R keys on your keyboard at the same time)
2.
In the Run window, enter the following command (include the quotes) and press OK:
"C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary
If you get an error message, copy and paste the exact command from this page and try again.
Be aware that if you have changed the installation path for Skype then you will need to enter the correct path for the Skype.exe file.
If this solution fails, you can try another option:
1.Find the Skype executable file (Skype.exe) in: C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\
2.Right click on it and select Send to > Desktop (create shortcut)
3.Locate the shortcut on the desktop, then right-click on it and select Properties
4.In the Target field, add: /secondary. The Target field should now be "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /secondary
5.Click OK. You can now start a new instance of Skype every time you double-click the new shortcut.

Everytime i try to access yahoo messenger, an error message "Cannot load resource DLL" appears. How can I get into YM without seeing this message again?


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 log in yahoo messenger due to error socialview plug in


Uninstall everything yahoo related from add/remove programs. Go to your C:, then Program Files and delete the yahoo folder from there also. Now go download ccleaner from www.download.com and run the cleaner, once that is done run the registry cleaner a couple times.

Try re-installing the latest yahoo from there. IF that failed also, you have one last shot that will work but it can be tedious a bit and a little dangerous so make sure to back up your files before proceeding. If the error still happens, do all of the above except for re-installing the yahoo. Now from the run command (Windows Logo Key + R), type: regedit <Hit ENTER>. Up top click on Edit and then click Find. Type: Yahoo! <Hit Enter>. Delete what it found and then press F3 to find the next yahoo! item. Delete everything it finds till there are no more matches found. Close the Regedit and reboot the pc. Now re-install the latest Yahoo Messenger and the problem is gone. I have done this several times for clients and this fixes it 100% of the time. Cheers!

You didn't write that which operating system you using....but this error comes maximum in vista...it is related with Windows Resource Protection (WRP)...which use to keep your system file protected and secure....may be any of the file in SxS folder is corrupted or incorrect version.... You can try running sfc.exe(system file checker tool) to fix this....If you using vista, run your pc as an administrator and run cmd as an administrator as well. Type sfc /scannow and type Enter....while it running don't do other work on pc....it may take some time...be patient .....this command will scan all the protected system files, find out the incorrect version or corrupted version and replace with correct/suitable version....once you finish restart your pc and try install Yahoo messenger.

If you are a XP user, run your pc in Safe mode.and put the same command in cmd...and after finishing install yahoo messenger...
