I recently had yahoo chat but I did not want my real name on the screen while talking to strangers. So I wanted to change me user id. Well now its somehow not working at all and I really miss it, and want to go back on the messenger chat line.[chat rooms]. Please help me to get reconnected with a brand new user id and password.

During the chat session of yahoo messenger if you can not see you typed message or can not read the receive message. Just sign out and sign back try to send message if the message will appear in chat box. If the problem is still happen you need to restart the unit ans sign back. That;s what i have experience before and i know what i am doing to fix it.
You could try uninstalling the messenger and then doing a clean download and install(meaning make sure when you download that all of your running programs are turned off, including your virus control.) Also, you might want to check your virus control under interent content or whatever yours may call it and see if you have been prohibited from using yahoo messenger there. Someone may have accidentally prohibited any chat or messenger programs. Good luck and let us know with a rating. thank you.
(I changed my opinion of the best method for doing this in the middle of my post - read to the very end).
Open Yahoo Messenger (I am assuming you are using Version 9 (Beta). Click on the Contacts tab and go to Message archive. This will pull up all conversations, incl deleted offline messages from pornbots, etc. Right click each folder under the main "Messages" folder and delete them one by one. I tried deleting them in bulk, but this feature doesn't seen to be enabled yet - I would tell Yahoo that they need to improve on this feature when they finalize version 9.
Oops! correction: they did enable this feature (see below)
Open Yahoo Messenger. Click the "Messenger" tab. go to Preferences. Click on Archive. Click on "No, do not save any of my messages". Then click, "Clear archive now".
Yahoo's suggested method: To turn off archiving of your instant messages: 1.Click History in the top-right part of the page. 2.Click Options in the upper right of the My History window. 3.Un-check “Enable Message History” in the dialog. 4.Click Done.
