1. May be it is firewall settings. Disable any firewall and then try.

2. If your using 9.0 that's probably the reason, it's still very buggy. So just uninstall it and go here to get 8.1

I do recommend you get the 8.1.0.421 version as it is the most stable a bug free version of messenger !!

When you download it just save it to your desktop and then run the installer from there.

If you have XP just double click on it to start the install.

If you are on Vista you will need to Right click on it(the installer you just downloaded) then click "Run as Administrator" to get it to install correctly.

Also delete your temporary files, cookies from the Internet Option window

Thanks.

I have gotten this issue several times being a tech for the HP notebook division and I found a simple solution for it.

Right Click on the Yahoo! Messenger icon on the desktop and select properties.
Click on the Compatibility Mode tab
Check the box at the top to enable it and make sure the mode is Windows XP SP2.
Select ok.
Restart machine.

I hope this works for you all. =)
