Just go into the installation path of Yahoo Messenger

I merged those files (with a double click) and now Messenger works even on my limited account.

We're sorry, but there appears to be a problem loading the message.. . this message appears when I am trying to read my yahoo mail


This shouldn't happen all the time, but it will happen from time to time when the server at Yahoo is just busy fetching data for you. Closing your Yahoo email program and restarting will generally cure that problem.
If you are getting this message generally more than once per day, there is an issue with your email program communicating with the server at Yahoo and you should call or email Yahoo support if you can access your email. Since Yahoo doesn't store data locally on your Hard Drive, but on Yahoo servers, you must take up the issue with Yahoo support services.

Hope this helps.....

Online video turns white on full screen. I still have sound, but no video.When I exit full screen it comes back. I'm running XP.


Go to the Start Menu. Go to Control Panel. Locate the Icon "Device Manager". Once the dialogue Box "Device Manager" appears, locate and click on "Sound, Video, and Game Contollers".
Click on the + button to the left of this and double click on each controller. When the dialogue box opens, go to Driver and select "update driver".
After updating each driver (if update not available a message will appear telling you that you have the most current or best currently installed).
Also, if prompted, select to check Internet automatically. Do not search the computer files: you will not find them here (unless you manually installed drivers, and haven't enabled them yet).
Please let me know if you need further assistance if this does not change your video status. Here is one other thing you can try:
Update your Adobe version. This is usually the program that is used when viewing videos online. Also, when attempting to play a video - watch at the top of the screen for a yellow bar - usually a message will appear alerting you of this, which indicates you need to enable the Active X for this particular website. I doubt this is the case, but I often run into this, and very seldom notice this yellow bar. The message does not always appear so be alert of this just incase.
Being this is a desktop, you may need to upgrade the video card as well. You shouldn't have to: You can also locate the video card installed in your computer through the Device Manager and update the drivers for it as well.
Let me know how or if any of this helps.

I am having problems setting up outlook 2007 for my yahoo.es address.what are the incoming and outgoing mail settings. when I try to do the auto set up it doesnt seem to recognise my network password for...


Here’s how you can read your Yahoo! Mail Plus email using Outlook 2007:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Account Settings.

    Note: If you do not see Account Settings, place your cursor over the two arrows at the bottom of the list to display more choices.
  2. On the E-mail tab, click New. The Add New E-mail Account dialog box appears.
  3. Select the Manually configure server settings or additional server types checkbox. Click Next. The Choose E-mail Service screen appears.
  4. Select Internet E-mail, and click Next. The Internet E-Mail Settings screen appears.
  5. Complete the fields as follows:
    • Your Name: Type your name as you’d like it to appear when you send an email message.

      E-Mail Address: Type your Yahoo! Mail Plus email address (for example, testing80@yahoo.com).

      Account Type: Select POP3 from the pull-down menu.

      Incoming mail server: Type plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com.

      Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Type smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
    • Select the Remember Password checkbox if you don't want Outlook to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
    • Do not select the Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
  6. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  7. Select the Outgoing Server tab:
    • Select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox.
    • Make sure that Use same settings as my incoming mail server is selected.
  8. Click the Advanced tab:
    • For Incoming Server (POP3), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the Incoming Server (POP3) field automatically changes from 110 to 995. If it doesn’t, type 995.
    • In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) field, type 465. Under Outgoing Server (SMTP), select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) checkbox.
    • Next to Use the following type of encrypted connection, select SSL from the pull-down menu.
    • If want to keep a copy of your email messages on the Yahoo! Mail server, select the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want to delete your messages from the Yahoo! Mail server after viewing them in Outlook, leave the box unchecked.
    • If you want to save your Yahoo! Mail messages on both the Yahoo! Mail server and on your computer, select the Leave a copy of messages on the server checkbox. If you want your messages to be deleted from the Yahoo! server after Outlook has downloaded them onto your computer, leave the box unchecked.

      Note: After your messages are deleted from the server, we cannot retrieve them.
  9. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  10. Click Next to continue. The Congratulations screen appears.
  11. Click Finish to close the Add New E-mail Account dialog box.
  12. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.

Troubleshooting tips
If you still can’t send Yahoo! Mail from Outlook 2007, you might be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try using port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!’s SMTP server. To make this change:
  1. From the Tools menu, select Account Settings. The Account Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Double-click your Yahoo! Mail Plus account. The Change E-mail Account dialog box appears.
  3. Click More Settings. The Internet E-mail Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Outgoing Server (SMTP) box, type 587.
  6. Click OK to close the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box.
  7. Click Next to continue. The Congratulations screen appears.
  8. Click Finish to close the Change E-mail Account dialog box.
  9. Click Close to close the Account Settings dialog box.

Manual update fails, no internet connection


I have had similar problems after trying to activate and update on my customers computers. I know it is Trend Micros servers that are down for maintenance. Wait a day or two and then try again and it will work. Your computer is protected during this time even though it is not activated/updated.
