I woul like to run yahoo mesenger at start up wiht out having to ok it evry time i restat my pc. in vista i had no problem but, wiht win 7 i canot figure it out


When you install Yahoo! Messenger on your computer, the program is adds itself to your computer's startup list. Each time you boot your computer, Yahoo! Messenger, and all other programs included in the list, starts automatically. Having too many programs on the list might reduce your computer's performance. To prevent Yahoo! Messenger from loading and popping up on your screen each time you boot your computer, you must remove it from the startup list. Yahoo! Messenger allows you to disable automatic startup through the program's preferences menu.
1.Open Yahoo! Messenger and log in your account.
2.Click the "Messenger" button at the top of the Yahoo! Messenger.
3.Click "Preferences" and the "Yahoo! Messenger Preferences" dialog box appears on your screen.
4.Click "General" and remove the checkmark from the box labeled "Automatically Start Yahoo! Messenger."
5.Click "Apply" and click "OK" to close the dialog box.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Cant i log in yahoo messenger


If your Messenger is unable to connect to our Messenger servers, it will display a message that says it can't connect, or it will show a yellow light with "Connecting" for a long period, or the light at the bottom will just stay grey, and say "Not Connected". If any of these occurs, then you are having a connection problem, and not a problem with your Yahoo! ID or password. (Only if you see an Invalid Login error message are you having a problem with your ID or password.) If your Messenger is unable to connect, here's what to try first:

- Pull down the Messenger's "edit" menu
- Click on "preferences", then click on the "connection" tab
- Click on "no network detection" (so that there is a dot in the circle next to it), then hit the ok button at the bottom.
- The Messenger will ask you if you want to try to log on with your new proxy settings. Click on the "yes" button.
- This will bring up the screen where you enter your Yahoo! ID and password. If the ID and password are not there already, enter them, then hit the "login" button.

If this doesn't work, try this:
- Pull down the Messenger's "edit" menu
- Click on "preferences", then click on the "connection" tab
- Click on "Firewall with no proxies", then hit the ok button at the bottom.
- The Messenger will ask you if you want to try to log on with your new proxy settings. Click on the "yes" button.
- This will bring up the screen where you enter your Yahoo! ID and password. If the ID and password are not there already, enter them, then hit the "login" button.

This configuration will work in almost any situation, but the drawback is that if you connect in this way, you won't be able to use the voice chat feature.

If neither of the above options work, you're probably behind a firewall or proxy server that will require you to enter in it's address. From the connection tab, click on "Use proxies". Here you'll see where you can enter your firewall and/or proxy server's address and port number. Unfortunately, we don't have any way to determine this information. To find out the right address, you'll need to contact your network administrator (if you're at work), or your Internet Service Provider (if you're at home) to make sure that your firewall and proxy settings are correct.

For the beggining try to sign in from the webinterface: Yahoo Mail. If it works, then changing connection options for your messenger. It could have changed. If it doesn't work try to reinstall Yahoo Messenger. Good luck.

Login error 81003004 from Yahoo Messenger


as far as wat i did to my YM.

i simply checked the connection preferences and turned

"Connect via a proxy server."

then select

"HTTP proxy"

after that take a look at your internet connection dropdown list..

some mistakes are seen here.. instead of having the "broadband" connection selected the "dial-up" connection was chosen by YM itself..

hope that helps ya ^^
