Problem with new email notification link on IM!

Hi, I am using yahoo instant messenger 8.1. When I click on Help options to check for updates, nothing happens. When I have a new email notification, I click on the envelope icon nothing happens. It does not take me to yahoo mail. I deleted version 8.1 and I installed version 9.0, it got even worst. When I click on the envelope icon, it gives me an error message. And when I click on the help options, I get an error message window for each of the options. What should I do to solve the problem? Please help me! help me! My email address is franzu77@yahoo.com

There are 5 things that you must check:
1. At the start menu click on control panel>add or remove programs>set programs and access defaults>custom (there are 3 to chose from): check e-mail
2. At the tools menu click on internet options>programs: check e-mail
3. At the task-bar right click>properties>start menu>customize: check e-mail
4. At the start menu click on control panel>add or remove programs>change or remove programs: check if windows messenger 8.1 is still there 9.0 might need to be repaired. It will say change or remove.
5. At the start menu click on control panel> windows firewall>add a program: add windows 9.0 and make sure 8.1 has been deleted

Why my pc cant display instant IM from yahoo messenger


Your problem is with Internet Explorer - even if you do not use it and have another browser set as default. IE plays an unseen but essential part in the operation of Yahoo Messenger
Keep your IE updated - the latest version is 8 for Vista and XL
You may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.
To enable scripting:
Launch IE
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
Restart IE

Still not working ? Update software

use the links on this page to help update software.

After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions

Sounds like you have lost some support software during the upgrade ( not downloaded with Messenger but essential to operate it ) - check your settings first

I want to download yahoo messenger in my PC.How can I?Please help


Yahoo messenger account nothing but an yahoo account or yahoo email account or yahoo ID. Open www.yahoo.com and click create email account or you may click Get a new yahoo ID from yahoo messenger (bottom side). One form will come - fill up the form carefully. While putting the yahoo (new) ID - you should click "Check" to verify available ID. Click create new account. Now may use this yahoo ID for checking email as well as for yahoo messenger.
I hope the solution helped you. Many thanks for using www.fixya.com.

You may have lost some support software during the uninstall
This can happen if Yahoo Messenger or any program is open during the uninstall
Use the links on this page to check the support software is installed and fully updated.

Internet Explorer - Even if you have another browser set as default, IE is used as a link to operate Messenger
Adobe Flashplayer for for IE
Adobe Shockwaveplayer for IE
Sun Java

Once you know you have this support software installed - you can use an update checker to run a routine check on the software for updates

Finally - check your IE 8 settings
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable

I downloaded messenger 9.0 and everything works but my im when i send an im to sumone i can see what i sent or what they said in reply whats wrong with it i uninstalled it and reinstalled a couple times


The problem is you probably had a program running when you uninstalled Messenger and its uninstalled some of the support software - This is stand alone software and not included in the Messenger download - Hence, a re-install failed to resolve it.
Check IE settings first
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
