Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Downloading YM 9.0 it goes to 100% and never prompts completion

In the beginning it goes from 0% to 5% and the back to 0% then it goes to 1%, jumps to 10%, 2%-15% etc. then after about 15mins it will go directly to 100%. After hours of waiting it never completes but it continues to say 100% and is still rinning in the task manager window. I have dial up, and vista is the version of windows on the pc i have stopped anti virus software other programs that are unnessesary in the process tray, turned off screensavers deleted previous versions of the messenger. I have run out of ideas i tried the vista version of messenger it doesn't suit my need u can't go into chat rooms, so it doesn't work for us.ANY HELP PLEASE?

Hey,



it might happen if you are trying to download yahoo messenger directly from yahoo.com.



You may use software sites to download yahoo messenger version 9 and more likely it would work n vista.


One of the link is :-


http://www.download.com/Yahoo-Messenger/3000-2150_4-10029188.html?tag=mncol&cdlPid=10888512



I hope it wl slve ur question.....

Try downloading other versions of YM. Maybe YM ver10 is not compatible with the Operating System you're using.... Windows 7 is my OS before, downloaded Yahoo Messenger 10 and it doesn't work

I can't install ym, but it is already downloaded


Please check if the installer has been downloaded completely. If it is not completely downloaded, then it may be corrupt and hence you wont be able to install ym.

Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change nickname


Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY/CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
