81003005 is a connection error! caused by different things. 1st 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

Vista user?

this works for some..
1. Open your Internet Explorer
2. Go to Tools > Internet Options then click the Connections tab
3.Click the LAN Settings button and a new dialog box will open
4. At the new dialog box, look for the Proxy server checkbox, if this is checked, uncheck it.check connect directly to internet then click ok
5. Then your done, click OK button for the dialog boxes.
I prefer 8.1 never had any problems http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym...

I try to connect to yahoo messenger and I get a message that says there might be a problem with your internet connection, i run the trouble shooter in this message and it says possible problem with http...


Right click on your internet connection logo (2 blue monitor screens) in the System Tray and select "Diagnose and Repair"
No Problem? proceed.
Internet Explorer is used to sign into Yahoo Messenger. If you have another browser set as default IE will still sit as a link between your browser and Yahoo Messenger. For this reason most troubleshooting is concentrated on Internet Explorer.

Try each of these in turn, and try to sign in after each of them - if successful (or not) please feed back information to help others.

1) I would recommend installing the latest version of IE and update any support software (Flashplayer, Java, Shockwaveplayer) for IE by using an update checker
http://www.filehippo.com/updatechecker/
2) Start with a clean browser
Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.
http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
3) On the sign in page click 'Messenger' > Connection Preference
Toggle between 'Connect direct to the internet' and 'Proxy setting' make sure the information is correct in the lower 2 boxes. I am currently in the Asia Pacific region and I have to toggle between these settings a few times a week to maintain my connection
4) Check these settings in IE (even if you have another browser set as default)
a) Tools > Internet options > Connections > Lan settings > check 'Automatically detect settings - uncheck other options.
b) Tools > work offline - make sure this is NOT checked and has a red X through it
5) Disable your firewall and do a trial sign in
6) Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings-uncheck Proxy server and check automatically detect setting
7) Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > dial-up and virtual private Network setting > select your default connection > setting > check automatically detect setting
8)If you are unable to sign into this secure page (https)
https://login.yahoo.com/config/login?.src=fptx._intl=uk
copy the yahoo https address above and paste it in here:-
IE > tools > internet options > LAN settings - check automatically detect settings > Advanced - paste in 'Secure' window > OK
9) Run ccleaner again

I get kicked out occaisoanlly


too many reasons for that issue

either someone else is using your yahoo address and that would show a message saying you are logged in another computer.

or someone is trying to BOT you by using a Bot program to kick you out of yahoo.

or maybe the internet connection is low and that might be the reason.

for the first reason you can change the password
for the second reason you can install a tunnel program to protect you from Bots.
the third reason you will need to check the internet connection and make sure its running without any problems.

cheers
