Question about Yahoo Messenger
I downloaded Yahoo messenger version 9.0, it kept messing up and it took ages to load. Tried to go back to version 8, but kept getting "Co Create Instance for the My Yahoo DLL failed."
What can I do to fix this messenger problem? I have Xp home and I had the old version of Yahoo before and it installed no problem, now with 9.0 it goes through the steps, tells me I have new programs installed and yet its not there. And of course Window Messenger does not work with my yahoo friends?
Step 1: Uninstall the Yahoo Messenger
Step 2: Go to Run
Step 3: Type REGEDIT
Step 4: Delete the Yahoo Messenger and try re-installing it again.

The old Messenger folder probably failed to fully uninstall. Old software and fragments have probably corrupted the new installation.
When downloading/uploading close all other programs. I suggest you download and run ccleaner first before you proceed further. Run it through a couple of times - include "registry" from the left hand toolbar. Do not be alarmed at the amount of files you have to delete, especially if you do not clear it on a daily basis. Use this path to uninstall and remove the old messenger software.
> Start > Computer >> Local disk (C) >> Program files >> Yahoo >> Messenger
As you have XL, you should have the Messenger folder and the Profile sub-folder inside ( It contains the Archives ) Delete anything else inside the Messenger folder
Delete shortcut on desktop
