Question about Yahoo Messenger
When trying to change my display picrure it stays the same wont let me change it
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.

If you only want to change your dispaly image then you can do this with the older versions.i mean the version below than 9 will work.you just install any older version specially 7.5 and then change your image. i am sure it will work . it will work only for those whose display images are not going to change but not for those that experiencing black screen on the image.i repeat if your display image is still i mean only one image is set on it permanently then you do the thing i wrote.install the older version of yahoo and then try to change the display image.i will work.

An easy way to fix this problem would be to:
1) close yahoo messenger
2) using windows explorer go into the following folders: Program Files/Yahoo/Messenger
3) Now delete the folder *cache*
4) Restart Yahoo messenger, and you'll be able to change your Display picture.
