    Thank you for comment.please check whether there a folder by the name "Yahoo!" in your program files.Else it might have been accidentally deleted from your system.It contains the "uninstall.exe" file using which we can uninstall yim.Still not a problem.Need not uninstall it.try replacing the existing messenger by reinstalling or overwriting.Will be waiting for your comments.

Step by step on how to use the messenger

To use Yahoo Messenger, you first need to download it. Here is the link to the latest version which is Yahoo Messenger 10:

If you want to use Chat Rooms, these are available on the US version of Yahoo Messenger 10. Just click on the US flag at the bottom of the download page.

Once downloaded, this is how you can add your contacts and friends:

Click on "Contacts" in the top of the "Messenger" window pane.

Click on "Add a Contact".

You will then see two options. Either you can add somebody from their Messenger ID or email address or you can choose a contact from your address book.

For each contact you add, click on "Next" to take you through the process. An invitation will then be sent to each one you have added. Their names will appear on your Messenger List with a message "Add Request Pending". This message will disappear when the invitation is accepted.


You right click on the contact that you want to IM and then click on " Instant Message". Another box will open up for you to type your message in. When you have finished typing your message, hit the "Send" button on the right of the box you are typing in.

If the person is showing as "online", he will get the message straight away. If the person if "offline", he will receive the message as soon as he signs into Yahoo Messenger.

To use email chat, you need to sign yourself in on your email page. Next to your username, you will see a status which may be set to "Offline" at the moment. Click on it and change your status to "Available".

An e-mail was sent to every person on my yahoo mailing list for Viagra. The message looks like I sent it but I did not


This is a common problem. Someone has hacked your email, and sent those messages.

You should probably change your password.

Hope this helps.

When I send and IM it does not show on the screen after I hit send and when I am alerted that someone has sent me an Im I cant see it at all. Its like it was never recieved or sent!!! Please help!

The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that:

2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleaner reginout cleaner to easily fix it

Thank you for using fixya! I hope I had helped you with your problem. May you have a good day!

Im not open my yahoo.messenger

On Yahoo's log in page, there is a link that says, "I can't access my account". It will ask you of your alternative email address so it can send you your password through that account, if that's not possible, you will need to provide an answer to the "Question" that you specified on your Yahoo registration form. I hope you still remember the answer.

Forgot my pasword

If you have forgotten your password, the only way to access your Skype account again is to have a new password code sent to the email address you used when you registered with Skype.
After you request a new password code (this website:, you will receive an email containing a link to Skype's secure website and a code to change your password. The code will be valid for 6 hours from the time of generation. If you do not use it within this timeframe, you will have to request another one.
