Because Micorsofts media player has a limited amount of file types that it will play. An option is to use some other player such as realplayer. Another option is to obtain software that will convert one file type to another.. I am guessing that you have the most update  media player. If not , download in through windows update.

My yahoo messenger is locked 81003003


HI.......................

it has errors
Messenger "9" 1st version was in Beta (testing) form. The newest version is not, But it's not working well either. Stick to 8.1 until they work out the Bugs. Including people using 8.1 trying to message ones with 9 or reverse they are having compatibility problems; like text not showing,pictures not showing. It shuts down on Vista users , not allowing people to log in.Web cams do not always work. Many things do not work or are missing that YM 8.1 has. It Seems for Vista users it is so buggy Yahoo is giving up on it and are no longer trying to fix it. http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2008/...
You need to remove version 9 completely 1st to Get version 8 to work.
Use this method: Start,My PC, C drive, open Program files.Next open Yahoo file then Messenger file.Click on UNWISE to Un install messenger 9 completely. Do not just delete yahoo file as this can cause problems with other Yahoo programs.
Download the newest 8.1 here http://download.yahoo.com/dl/msgr8/us/ym...
Your contacts list and messages are stored online and will be there when you return to 8.1 messenger.

Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash 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, then download the older version.
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Flash-Play...

Some people are losing signal,things fade out, freezing up or getting disconnected . This can be caused my running low on virtual memory! You can increase your memory by going to start button, settings, control panel, system, advance tab, performance, advance tab, virtual memory, change it, make it 1500 kb or higher, In both boxes, click apply then ok . This applys for all instant messengers,MSN, Yahoo,skype ect.

Yahoo 10 will not install


Hi,
I also get this error with Yahoo Messenger 10. However it all works fine with version 9.0.
Version 10 is bugged in regards to Windows 7, so there is not much you can do until a patch comes out.
You can download an older version of Yahoo Messenger from here
http://www.oldapps.com/yahoo_messenger.p…


You should also make sure that Adobe Flahs Player is properly installed in Internet Explorer.
You can visit http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer with Internet Explorer to install it.

Hope this helps, wbwTeam

Trying to download skype and we keep getting message 'skype setup (1) is not a valid win 32 application'


Download some programs like Skype are vulnerable when it's not running or invalid win32 application occur. Here are a reason why:
* Maybe your Antivirus are very strong to protect on your system when it talks about downloading.
* Next is keep your operating system clean or tuneup before downloading such file on the web.
* Next is keep your system updated, for this reason there are some parts on the registry where broken and capable of not installing such skype programs.
* Last is when it's still have the problem exist even one ore more programs that are displaying win32 invalid application, reinstall your sytem.
That is all the best part when encounter the problem like this.
Good luck!

Sign in problem


it sounds like the program may need to be re installed, the system might have a firewall that's preventing yahoo from connecting, your certificates are invalid, or you're using an invalid version of yahoo messenger.. there are a number of reasons this may happen the first thing i'd do is re download it from http://messenger.yahoo.com before you install it uninstall the current install of it as well as any toolbars, also goto http://www.ccleaner.com and delete your temp files and do a registry scan.. also goto www.counterspy.com and get a trial of counterspy run a full scan on your pc, if you still have problems send me a message.
