Depending on what kind of computer you have you might need to run a system recovery on your computer it could have a corrupted file that is causing this to run a system recovery depends on what brand your computer is i know most hp,dell,compaq,and sony have the option to do this.hp & compaq say when you turn the computer on F10 system recovery/restore one of those 2 for a dell 2004 or newer when you first turn it on press and hold ctrl F11 it will take you to system recovery.Sony depending on which model you have u should be able to find it in the start menu.Warning make sure you back up all files before recovery the computer it wipes out all downloaded file and takes it all the way back to factory settings just like when u bought it out of the store.

Why i cant open my always appear the troubleshoot.even my connection is ok...but the same cant open it?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Try re-installing the messenger and then check. If the problem still persists, Check for the firewall settings If that might be blocking the messenger to log on the internet. Firewall settings are located in the Control Panel settings (Or Windows Defender in Vista and Windows 7). Update me or feel free to ask if this didn't works.

Stopping Yahoo messenger loading auto matically


you can try the following .

If you have Vista:
Go to start>search
Type "run"
Proceed as follows.


If you have Windows XP:
Go to start>run
Type in "msconfig"
Go to the tab that says "startup"
Uncheck Yahoo Messenger.
Click "OK"

I'm sure you can also do this by going through the Yahoo Messenger's properties and options. I don't use IM, so I can't guide you through that.

Yahoo messenger 9.0 download

Yes, I did fix the problem. Not the way I wanted to, but I did fix the problem. Since I needed to have Yahoo Messenger on my computer, I uninstalled yahoo 9.0 and reinstalled 8.1. I felt that since the manufacturers would not stand by their products (Microsoft for Vistat and Yahoo! for Yahoo! Messenger, I loaded what would load on my machine and went with it. It is a sad day, when we are expected to doll out mega bucks to have some tech guru to help us with our computers because the creators of the prodects will not stand by their products.
