Step1 Close all other applications running on your computer, except your Internet browser. Step2 Go to the Yahoo website and click on the "Messenger" button on the right side of the page. Click on the button that says “Download Now.” This will take you to the download page. Step3 Read the instructions on the page, and then click the “Get Started” button. A download page will appear which may give you a choice of saving or running the program. You can save it to your Desktop and install it yourself or click run and let it automatically install and open the installation dialog box. Step4 Select the things you want to install. Yahoo! Messenger with Voice downloads Yahoo! Toolbar with Anti-Spy and Pop-Up Blocker and makes Yahoo your default search engine for Internet Explorer. If you use a web browser other than Internet Explorer, you may have to reset your preferences after you download Messenger. Step5 Click “Next” and read the installation dialog box when it pops up. Check the box when asked if you accept the License Agreement and Terms. It won’t install if you don’t check this box. Step6 Allow the program to install. At the end of installation, you’ll have the opportunity to personalize your Yahoo! Messenger with Voice through the Preferences section.

Hey Eric you told me to reinstall yahoo messenger.How do i reinstall yahoo messenger?Do i have to delete yahoo and reinstall it again?


You should be able to go to www.google.com and type download yahoo messenger in the search box. Download it and install it. If it requires that you delete the old one it will tell you to delete it. I'm betting that it will delete the old one for you, that way it saves your userid, password, friends, contacts, etc. If you delete it, you will lose all that.

Everytime i open my Yahoo messenger it freezes my computer... what should i do?


Try a clean uninstall reinstall of Yahoo messenger.
Assuming that your Operating system is Windows XP. First go to Start>Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs
Select Yahoo Messenger & Click on Remove. Once it is completed, Open My Computer > Local Disk C:\Program Files\Yahoo! and delete this folder.
Delete the folders below if exists.
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Yahoo
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Yahoo!
Then download the latest version from the Yahoo website and install it.
Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Fixing a corrupted yahoo messenger.exe


·If you have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory.

To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application.

All archives will be deleted if they are not copied. If you have a Flash drive copy it. If none, copy them like this:

CLOSE Yahoo! Messenger (if it is currently running).

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Your "Profiles" folder contains your complete Message Archive. Copy it to the a different folder on your computer and RENAME IT AND save..

Now you can DELETE the Yahoo Messenger by deleting the directory:

CLOSE the Yahoo! Messenger application if you currently have it running. Make sure all instances of Internet Explorer are CLOSED.

Go to your desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Click the "C:" drive.

Go to C:\Program Files\Yahoo!

Highlight the Yahoo! Messenger folder and press the Delete key on your keyboard.

DEFRAG your computer files to remove those empty spaces resulting from the deletion.

TO INSTALL:

CLOSE all running applications EXCEPT for your Internet browser.

DISABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S. Most times they interfere in the downloading/installation process.

Click the link below to download Yahoo Messenger

http://messenger.yahoo.com/webmessengerp…


Click the "Download Now" button.

Double-click the Yahoo Messenger executable once the download completes to begin the installation process.

COPY MESSAGE ARCHIVE

Go to your Desktop and double-click "My Computer."

Select the "C:" drive.

Go to: C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles

Drag/drop the copy of your Message Archive to the NEW Yahoo Messenger folder\Yahoo\Messenger\Profiles.

ENABLE YOUR ANTI VIRUS/ANTI SPY PROGRAM/S

My Yahoo messenger will not open, I cannot remove it, and any reinstall freezes up. Consequently I cannot use it


Install ccleaner and remove the Yahoo messenger Entry From the installed program list. Then manually delete the yahoo folder in ur program files folder. Then install your yahoo messenger. If you still have the problem u can use other messengers like trillian or meebo which acts as an alternate messenger to chat wid ur yahoo friends.
