Here are things to check or try;
1. The date on your computer needs to be set properly -- double click the clock verify that the time and date are set.
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here. http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
go to control panel,click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save. until your problems are solved you can log on here http://iloveim.com or http://webmessenger.com

>my yahoo messenger crashes few seconds after i log in..tried to uninstall then reinstall for like 10 times now..help please:(


Good Day Ischan!

Please check if the problem is not internet connection issues. You may need to call your internet provider if that is the case.

Or, I would suggest upgrading the version of your Internet Explorer. Yahoo products like Yahoo Messenger rely its stable connection through Internet Explorer of Windows.

It doesn't matter if you are using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Just upgrade the version of Internet Explorer and that will fix it.

To download Internet Explorer, please go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie

Good Luck!

Hi there,
I've also encountered this issue, please try to clear cookies and cache then try to relaunch the Yahoo Messenger. If it still doesn't work please take note of the error message. Usually you'll get information of what the problem is though the error message.
Good luck!

I cant seem to login to yahoo messenger


Try going to Yahoo's account password helper site: https://edit.yahoo.com/forgotroot

Follow the appropriate steps for your situation. This should solve most account related issues.

If this doesn't help, please post the client you're using (most likely Yahoo's client), the client version number, any error messages or relevant information and your version of Windows.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful. Thanks.

When I try to login to yahoo messenger I get error 81003004


hi,
Follow these methods:-
First method:
1. go to messenger menu
2. select connection preference/ preference
3. the tab will automatic select connection preference, if it doesn’t, select it manual.
4. change your internet conection type, for my problem i choose broadband(DSL/Cable).

Second Method
For me, it was because I had set a localhost (127.0.0.1) proxy in Internet Explorer for anti-filtering purposes, thru which Y! Messenger was trying to connect. So I had to remove it to get it done.
just go to:
Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections (tab) > Lan Settings (button)
then uncheck the Proxy server checkbox.


Thanks!

It seems to be issue with your internet connection. Unstable connections will disconnect th messenger frequently. Observe the same with any other messenger software like gtalk.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Messenger error 81003005


Hi,

here are some causes: Firstly; this error occurs when your connection preferences are not properly set. I'm not talking about your Yahoo! ID and Password here, but you may need to adjust certain features depending on what network you're on. Let's says for example, if a firewall protects your network, it may block yahoo messenger when it tries to connect to the server. You need to change your connection settings, click the Messenger menu in yahoo messenger and select Connection Preferences. Select Firewall With No Proxies. Select your Internet Connection type from the pull-down menu at the bottom and enter your Home Country if the adoptions aren?t grayed out. Click OK and login again using the new settings. If this option doesn?t work, click Connection Preferences in Yahoo! Messenger again and select No Network Detection. Try to login again using the new settings. In some instances, you may need to provide yahoo messenger with the IP address of your firewall or proxy server (you can get this information from your network administrator or from your Internet service provider). Click Messenger and select Connection Preferences again. Select Use Proxies. Enable either the HTTP Proxy or the SOCKS Proxy as needed and provide the proper address. Click OK and login again using the new settings.Secondly; if you are using IM9 there are sign in problems. This is what yahoo has to say. Try an updated version of Yahoo! Messenger 9.0(9.0.0.2128). This latest build includes a fix for the sign-in issues that have been affecting some users. If you were seeing an error code?81003005? when trying to sign in, this latest version may fix that problem. Even if you were experiencing a different kind of sign-in issue, I recommend installing this latest version. Hope it was helpful!

Thanks.

Login error 81003004 from Yahoo Messenger


as far as wat i did to my YM.

i simply checked the connection preferences and turned

"Connect via a proxy server."

then select

"HTTP proxy"

after that take a look at your internet connection dropdown list..

some mistakes are seen here.. instead of having the "broadband" connection selected the "dial-up" connection was chosen by YM itself..

hope that helps ya ^^
