You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages

Hello ! My name is Cristi and i have a problem with my yahoo ID and e-mail account. From almoust 3 months...


First, try signing in with your Yahoo! ID here: https://imo.im/

You should be able to log in there. To fix error 81003002, you will need to do a complete removal and reinstallation of Yahoo! Messenger. I will give you 2 of the best ways to go about this:

The first way is to use Revo Uninstaller. (Recommended, requires a program installation)
( found here: http://www.revouninstaller.com/start_freeware_download.html )
You can use Revo to uninstall Yahoo! Messenger, making sure that you do at least a moderate level scan of your system using Revo. Delete everything that Revo asks you to. This will make sure that all files and keys related to Yahoo! Messenger are also erased from the system.

The second way to uninstall is to do it manually. (NOT Recommended, no installations)
Open your start menu, then click Control Panel. Navigate to "Add/Remove Programs". Find Yahoo! Messenger in the list, then uninstall it. Reboot if prompted. After it successfully uninstalls (reboot if prompted), go to "C:Program FilesYahoo", or if it is not there, "C:Program Files(x86)Yahoo". If you see a folder called "Messenger", delete it.

Reboot your computer, then reinstall the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. You should be able to login now. If you are unable to log in, and you uninstalled Yahoo! Messenger using the second method, then you will have to use the first method.

I am unable to sign in to yahoo messenger but i can sign in to other yahoo functions like mail and webmessenger. the only problem is, is with the messenger. I have tried using a different yahoo id but i...


Install older version of yahoo messenger..
And let me tell your one thing that, when to try to login to your yahoo account on yahoo messenger, your internet connection must be responding. This you can ensure by keeping your server busy(opening websites).
The problem you are telling might be caused when you are trying to login to yahoo account through yahoo messenger and yahoo mail.
I recommend you that you open yahoo account through yahoo mail(only if you are unable to sign in to yahoo account through yahoo messenger.)
yahoo mail now-a-days is providing yahoo chat service when you sign in your yahoo account on yahoo mail.
at left side of your mail box you can see yahoo mini messenger.
