I had a yahoo mail account and the yahoo toolbar, no problems. Two
nights ago I downloaded yahoo messenger and that is when the problems
started and it may be my fault. When I downloaded messenger the box for
toolbar was checked and I did not uncheck it. Yahoo Messenger loaded
fine but a window kept opening asking permission to allow yahoo toolbar
(install) . I would click allow, it would close and open again right
away, click allow, close open etc. Finally i clicked don't allow and
checked the box saying don't show me this message again......then dI
got an information bar message saying something about intranet ( I
never heard of intranet and not being aware of my options i clicked
don't show me this message again) From this point on I cannot access
yahoo mail so I figured I would just uninstall yahoo messenger and
yahoo toolbar and start again but now all I get when I use the google
or msn search engines to access yahoo, I get the message that internet
explorer cannot open this web page......wow, can I fix this?

As its name implies, Yahoo Messenger allows you to exchange instant messages with other Yahoo users. But the software's capabilities extend far beyond one-on-one text conversations. You can use Yahoo Messenger to participate in chat rooms, share photos, make telephone calls, video chat, play games and more. When you experience problems accessing your Yahoo Messenger account, you may receive a message that it has been locked.
Locked Accounts Yahoo places locks on Messenger accounts as a security precaution. The locks take effect when there are multiple, failed attempts to access a user's Yahoo account. Even if you unsuccessfully tried to to sign in to a different Yahoo product, you may find your Messenger account locked. b> Unlocking Accounts b> To unlock your account, go to Yahoo's sign-in page and enter your user ID and password. When you reach your My Yahoo page, click on one of the Quicklinks you see on the left side of the page. Leave your My Yahoo page open. Sign into Yahoo Messenger for the Web, then try to sign into Yahoo Messenger. If you are unsuccessful, contact customer care. b> Current Versions b> "Account locked" messages aren't the only sign-in problems you may experience with Yahoo Messenger. Some users experience sign-in issues when using older versions of the software. Yahoo engineers recommend upgrading to the newest version of Messenger. To determine what version you have, look for the "About Yahoo Messenger" link under the Help menu. Visit the Yahoo Messenger website to determine if this is the current version. b> Other Sign-in Issues b> When you have trouble signing in to Messenger, verify that your Internet connection is working. You can do this by navigating to a webpage. If you are able to sign into Yahoo Mail but not Messenger, there may be a problem with your connection settings. The Yahoo Help website offers troubleshooting steps for these settings. Hope this helps

check if only yahoo messenger is having problems with your webcam.
go to "start menu" ,"control panel" then "scanners and cameras"
open you webcam there and check if it is working by taking pictures.
if ok try reinstalling yahoo messenger maybe problem with the program.
if no your webcam have a problem call the manufacturer.
Uninstall the current version, then my best guess would be to install a program that automatically installs the yahoo toolbar. I believe older versions of Yahoo Messenger can do this. Try them here:

Head to the Yahoo Web site (see Resources below) to begin the account creation process.
Click on the 'Sign Up' link on the home page to begin the account creation process.
Fill in all of the required fields on the page that opens. This will include your name and some additional personal information, as well as your choice for a screen name and password. If your screen name choice already exists, then you'll need to choose an alternative, or pick from the suggestions that Yahoo provides.
Click the 'Sign Up' button again once your account is ready. This will make your Yahoo profile active.
Download Yahoo Messenger
Proceed to the Yahoo Messenger Web site. You will click the 'Messenger' link on the Yahoo home page or you can head directly to the Messenger Web site (see Resources below).
Click the 'Get Started' link on the Messenger home page. This will redirect you to the download page for the latest version of Yahoo Messenger.
Wait a few seconds for the download to automatically begin, or press 'Click Here' in Step 1 of the Yahoo Messenger download page. This will open the dialog box that begins the download.
Double-click the Yahoo Messenger executable once the download completes to begin the installation process.
Download Yahoo from this link: http://messenger.yahoo.com/download
Once you download it Double click the msgr9us.exe setup file, this will install yahoo messenger. Make sure that you read the screens during installation and choose to install messenger not just the tool bar.
Try rebooting your computer then do not open any programs except going to http://messenger.yahoo.com/ and downloading new installer and save it to your desktop. Now double click it and run the installer.
If the above does not work or if you are using Windows Vista try using
this link for the full installer (does not rely on yahoo servers).
These full installers come directly from a yahoo server and by pass the
web installer that most use. If on Windows Vista right click the full
installer and choose install as administrator. You might have to
temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn
it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts
and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User
Account Control on or off.
