If your Yahoo messenger has crashed then there is nothing to worry. You can reinstall your Yahoo messenger anytime you will not lose anything. All your contacts and profile is stored up on the server. When you sign in the Yahoo messenger you will automatically get all your contacts back. Uninstall your old Yahoo and install the latest one from the following link.
If you are unable to install this yahoo messenger 10 than what you have to do is repair your Windows by inserting the Windows disk. The computer will give like three options Reinstall upgrade and Repair Windows. Select "Repair".
At the top of your friends list window click on Contacts and make sure the "show offline contacts" is checked, this will make your friends show on your list whether they are online or offline.After checking this and none of them still show up on your list then you have an internal problem with messenger and you need to uninstall messenger Completely so you can get rid of the corrupted file that is causing your problem and get a clean install.When you uninstall not all of the yahoo messenger files are deleted from your Program Files, so if the problem you are having is caused by a corrupted file then the problem will still be there when you install it again.So what you need to do is uninstall messenger then go to your Program files and delete the yahoo folder. This will get rid of all remaining files especially the corrupted ones.
To uninstall you need to click on the Start button(the one on your task bar) then go to Control Panel then to Add/Remove Programs, find yahoo messenger in the list and click on it then on uninstall.<< this is for XPTo uninstall in Vista click on start then Control Panel then on Uninstall a Program in the new window find yahoo messenger click it to uninstall it.To find and delete the Yahoo folder click on the START button in your task bar then on My Computer then C: drive then Program Files then right click on the Yahoo folder and Delete it. It's a good idea tI do recommend you get the 22.214.171.1241 version as it is the most stable a bug free version of messenger !!
When you download it just save it to your desktop and then run the installer from there.If you have XP just double click on it to start the install.To install messenger on Vista you need to download messenger to your desktop. Then Right click on the installer and then click on "Run as Administrator" to get it to install correctly.you will not lose your contacts by uninstalling messenger as they are saved on the yahoo servers.o reboot your PC now to make sure it's all gone out of your system.
