Question about Yahoo Messenger

1 Answer

Yahoo instant messenger keeps shutting down

I will open yahoo IM and it immediately gives error report and has to close. i sometimes have to open it 8 or 10 times before it will "connect" and stay connected--then after a short amount of time it will send error report again and close. i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still get the same thing. i have hit "send error report" and never get any solution to the problem. if i am in the middle of a conversation and ignore the error window--it will sometimes let me continue with the conversation but not start another one. this happens whether i am "invisible" or "available" either one.

When I send a email from my yahoo mail it shutsdown my yahoo mess


Welcome to FixYa
  • Check your Messenger is Sign in at the Time of Sign in to Yahoo mail
  • Check in MOBILE phone/any other Device as you Signed in
  • Check in any other Browser as you Signed in
  • Check any other yahoo account is Signed in your Computer
  • Restart your PC
  • Sign out from Mobile/any other Device
Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time.
For example, Yahoo Messenger with Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Web messenger, your mobile phone, Ipod, or other computers etc. etc.
Yahoo classifies all these programs as "Different devices or locations". Navigating from one to the other will close one program and you may get the notification message you refer to.

OR someone has hacked into your account- Report to Yahoo and Try to Recover it-Send report Politely and concisely.Do not try to Send More report for Same cause..

My Yahoo Messenger keeps shutting down after I


Hi!

I have problem like that before and here is what I did...and it works, until now i can easily access my yahoo messenger..

I am using a mozilla browser.. because it surfs fast....the yahoo messenger can't be accessed.. with the right username and password and the net connection is stable..but no luck to get log in..I did uninstalled and reinstalled yahoo messenger for several times but still it won't work..

Then I search internet and found out that yahoo products rely its connection on microsoft Internet Explorer.....meaning yahoo messenger is best supported by Internet Explorer....So what I did is download the latest Internet Explorer 8 and download also the yahoo mesenger 10.
It did not matter whether you will be using IE8 as your default web browser or not. Just install IE8 on your computer (mine..am still using mozilla as my default web browser)......after installing IE8, install Yahoo Messenger10....

After successful installation.. sign in at yahoo messenger and it will work...

If you want to know the link for IE8 and YM10 here it is..click this file and save it..
1. Internet Explorer version 8 free download
2. Yahoo Messenger 10 free download

I hope this help you..
thanks...much appreciated if you rate this solution..thanks.

Error 81003004


[Solution # 1]
(1) Check your firewall to be sure that this port is not blocked.

(2) Ensure that another program is not using the same port number.

Type netstat in command prompt to see all active ports.
---------------------
[Solution # 2]

Goto Connection  Prefrences and use a http proxy. It helped!!!

---------------------

[Solution # 3]

It might do this because it cant recognize the internet. Mine does this from time to time too, but I'm not sure if I get that particular error.

Try a couple things. 

1. Totally close down Yahoo! and open it back up. See if that helps.

2. If you have a Wireless connection, shut your computer down and basically reboot the connection. Unplug your modem, then your router. Wait 15-30 seconds, then plug in your modem. Wait for the lights to all become solid, plug the router back in, then turn your computer on.

Sometimes a router will stop recognizing your computer. I've had it happen to me, and the odd part of it was I could still browse the net, but not use my IMs.

3. If nothing else works, uninstall and reinstall Yahoo! IM. It may just be a glitch.

When i login to messenger, it logs in and then instantly gives me a message saying yahoo messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close. i have done virus and spyware scan and there were none...


You can try the solution below:

Open an MS-dos prompt window (Start>Run>) and type the following regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll, and press enter. A message will appear stating that these have been registered successfully.

IM Locks up when IMing to a mobile device


well my friend it seems to me that yahoo messenger 9.0 is having some issues specially that it is beta and needs some work until it is properly done.

so my advice dont exceed the limit of the 151 characters or just downgrade to yahoo 8.0 until the 9.0 is free of bugs or glitches like these.

cheers
