Hi my friend

i've seen the problem before and the fix for this issue is just to update the windows explorer thats all what you need to do

so if you have internet explorer 6 (and thats the main one thats making the issue) update it to internet explorer 7 and everything will be back to normal.

>my yahoo messenger crashes few seconds after i log in..tried to uninstall then reinstall for like 10 times now..help please:(


Good Day Ischan!

Please check if the problem is not internet connection issues. You may need to call your internet provider if that is the case.

Or, I would suggest upgrading the version of your Internet Explorer. Yahoo products like Yahoo Messenger rely its stable connection through Internet Explorer of Windows.

It doesn't matter if you are using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Just upgrade the version of Internet Explorer and that will fix it.

To download Internet Explorer, please go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie

Good Luck!

When i am installing yahoo messenger during installation an error comes d3d9.dll not found reinstall it........now what can i do plz help me.........


ANY Yahoo! Messenger program will not install properly if a former program, or an incomplete install, has not been completely deleted from the computer first. (Don't worry - your Contacts List will be saved into the fresh installation of an updated Messenger!)
Delete all Yahoo Messenger references from the registry.
  • Use the Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs method,
  • Then double-check by going to Start > Search > files and folders > Yahoo! Messenger (notice the exclamation mark in the title).
  • Write down and delete all references manually if necessary. The uninstaller works well for Vista and Win 7, but not for XP - it leaves behind MANY junk files when uninstalling.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer 8 or 9 as your browser, Yahoo Messenger 10 will not work properly without Flash and Java programs installed, and possibly the .NET framework update. (Messenger 11 is still in beta format, so be wary of using it yet.). you'll have to download Flash and Java programs as well.
Last, you could used this link to fix a dll error:
http://fix-all-dll-errors.com/d3d9.dll/
Just click on the link, then click the button "Fix dll errors now." This should fix the issue. Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

I'm recieving messages in yaahoo messenger but my window is not displaying it, i am not able to see even what i've sent. i've enabled the script in control panel but its not not working yet. i've already...


Many people have been having the same problem!

From Yahoo Messenger Help:
I can't see the instant messages.

Hmm, well... you may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.

To enable scripting:
Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."

Click the "Security" tab.

Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.

Scroll down to "Scripting."

Enable the following:

* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.

Copied and pasted from Yahoo Messenger Help:

Why do I receive an error when running Yahoo! Messenger?
Best guess? You might have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory. To fix the problem, you must manually delete the Messenger directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

To delete the directory:

Close the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are closed.
Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Click the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!
Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard. (All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. Please see below.)
To install:

Close all running applications except for your Internet browser.
Visit the Yahoo! Messenger home page.
Click the "Download Now" button.
To copy your complete Message Archive:

Close Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).
Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."
Select the "C:" drive.
Go to:
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles.
Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the same location on another computer if you wish to view it elsewhere.
Note: If you copy this folder to another computer, your complete Message Archive will be copied, overriding the Message Archive on the computer to which you are copying.

Application not found


I just now fixed this problem in my laptop. This happens if u download any other Internet Browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox and uninstalled it. follow these steps to fix it..

>Open Internet Explorer >Go in Tools

>Internet Options >Program Tab

>Under 'Default Web Browser' Click on 'Make Default' Button

>Tick on 'Tell me if Internet Explorer not the default web browser'

>Apply

>OK .

This should solve the Application not found error in programs such as Yahoo Messenger, etc. Basically this error is because Internet Explorer is not your Default Browser & there is no other Web Browser installed on your computer to open the Link you clicked on :)
