I have Yahoo mail and Yahoo messenger on my phone. I can communicate by SMS to someone's phone or by IM to someone's messenger. When I try to sign in I get an error message. How can I fix it?

I've been having the exact same problem - which appears to have started at the same time as yours! I can't find how to fix it anywhere!

How to fix my yahoo messenger Error

1. Reboot your computer.
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del on your keyboard. This will bring up the Windows Security window. Click the "Task Manager" button and then click the "Task Manager" tab.
3. You will see a list of files/applications. These are the applications running in the background on your system, whether they show on your taskbar or not. Any one of these applications could be causing a conflict with the Yahoo! Messenger installation.
4. Click the top item on the list to highlight it. Then hold the "Shift" key down and click the last item on the list. This should highlight the whole list.
5. Click the "End Task" button. This will temporarily close all background applications on your system.
6. Click the "X" in the upper right corner to close the Task Manager window.
7. Install Yahoo! Messenger. You should not experience the same issue that you had before.
8. After Yahoo! Messenger is installed,run registry cleaner reginout also reboot your system. All other background applications will return to their original configurations.

I cant open my hide messesages in yahoo messenger it says a runtime error

You do not give your OS or a copy of the Runtime Error

Most Runtime errors in Messenger will be IE
IE is coded with Messenger and has to be kept clean and up to date

For runtime errors check out Microsoft support for IE
Even if you have another browser set as default IE is linked to Yahoo Messenger

I can't access any email or messenger account

I encountered this problem last night. I had gotten a virus that changed my lan settings, and even after I removed it the lan settings stayed.

Right click Tools from the Menu bar in Internet Explorer. (If you dont have a menu bar, right click the gray part below the url bar and select Menu Bar from the drop down list)

Select Internet Options from the bottom of the list.

Select the Connections Tab, 5th over at the top.

Click the LAN Settings box torwards the bottom of the page.

Make sure that "Automatically Detect Settings" Is checked, and NOT Proxy Server settings.

Apply changes, close Internet Explorer and reopen.

This should solve your problem.

Instant messenger abruptly quit working!

How To Fix Method 1: If you're using an old Sun Java runtime (for instance if you've never updated this since downloading or buying your PC) update it, at The Java Website.
Method 2: You may decide that you want Yahoo! Webcam and Voice Chat, in which case you need to check if you have Microsoft runtimes, make them default, or download them, you can find out how at Delta Knight or below.
Checking for Microsoft Java & Making default If the blue box above appears, it tells you wether your Java is Sun, Microsoft or Other.
If the box says Microsoft, you have a new problem go to The Forums and state the details.
If the box says Sun or Other
Go to Start, Run.
Type wjview
Press OK.
If you get a file not found error, Download Virtual Machine (not win 2000).
If you get information, click on OK. Now do the following:
Go to Start, Control Panel. Click on Internet Options.
Go to the Advanced tab.
Find "Java(Sun)" in the list.
Untick the box "Use Sun Java".
Close all Internet Explorer windows, and try chat again.

[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.
[Solution # 4]

Good luck
