There is no need to install any other yahoo multi messenger version, you can easily covert your normal yahoo messenger into multi messenger and enjoy your many ID's at the same time.  

Follow the given steps to change the yahoo messenger registry value:

iii) Here in right side panel, right click to create a new Dword value with name Plural and give value 1

iv) Now close the registry editor and restart your computer after any changes to go into effect.

v) For signing in with new YAHOO ID open another messenger(multiple)v open as many messengers    you need.

vi) If you want to disable the multiple messenger option then again open registry editor and change         Plural value 1 to 0.


Thanking you

CAN NOT GET CONNECTED TO YAHOO INSTANT MESSENGER


Good Day Katherine!

To get an access to a Yahoo Messenger Account, first you need to create a Yahoo Mail account to get a Yahoo email address or a Yahoo ID.

A Yahoo email address or Yahoo ID and its password is the one needed to access a Yahoo Messenger.

Follow these procedures:

1. Fill up first the registration form by clicking this Yahoo link: Create Your Account. 10_10_2011_2_15_56_am.jpg


Once you completed answering the form, do not forget to enter the captcha word on the small box before hitting the "Create My Account" button. Follow the online instruction. At the end it will launch the Yahoo and you will access your New Yahoo Mail Account. Check the inbox, that is what you should do. Always remember the email address that you created and your password. This is what you will be using when creating accounts to other online transaction.
(Example of an email address : katherinehollman@yahoo.com)

2. Now that you have a Yahoo email address and password, use it to log in at Yahoo Messenger.
To log in, you must first install a Yahoo Messenger program in your computer. If you don't have the program yet, you can download from the link below:
http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/ - after you save this program, run it to install in your computer.

3. Open your Yahoo Messenger. Log in using your email address and password. Then check your email inbox for verification


If you encounter a problem with the log in issue, please feel free to reply and I will assist you further.

You can create a new account in Yahoo Messenger by creating a new Yahoo Mail Account.

If you have existing Yahoo Messenger program in your PC, sign in using your new Yahoo Mail Account ID and Password.

You can sign up to Yahoo Messenger using your Yahoo email address and your Yahoo mail password.
You can also check your email for confirmation with your yahoo messenger account.

If you don't have the Yahoo Messenger program download here,

Hello ! My name is Cristi and i have a problem with my yahoo ID and e-mail account. From almoust 3 months...


First, try signing in with your Yahoo! ID here: https://imo.im/

You should be able to log in there. To fix error 81003002, you will need to do a complete removal and reinstallation of Yahoo! Messenger. I will give you 2 of the best ways to go about this:

The first way is to use Revo Uninstaller. (Recommended, requires a program installation)
( found here: http://www.revouninstaller.com/start_freeware_download.html )
You can use Revo to uninstall Yahoo! Messenger, making sure that you do at least a moderate level scan of your system using Revo. Delete everything that Revo asks you to. This will make sure that all files and keys related to Yahoo! Messenger are also erased from the system.

The second way to uninstall is to do it manually. (NOT Recommended, no installations)
Open your start menu, then click Control Panel. Navigate to "Add/Remove Programs". Find Yahoo! Messenger in the list, then uninstall it. Reboot if prompted. After it successfully uninstalls (reboot if prompted), go to "C:Program FilesYahoo", or if it is not there, "C:Program Files(x86)Yahoo". If you see a folder called "Messenger", delete it.

Reboot your computer, then reinstall the latest version of Yahoo! Messenger. You should be able to login now. If you are unable to log in, and you uninstalled Yahoo! Messenger using the second method, then you will have to use the first method.

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..

On more than on PC? Who else is accessing my same account?


Hi - Are you getting a message saying "You have been disconnected from chat because you have logged in from another location or device"
Since Messenger Version 9, Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time.
For example, Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Web-messenger, Yahoo Mail, your mobile phone, 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 above notification message .
Note. Hitting the X on the Contacts page in Yahoo Messenger does not sign you out of Yahoo Messenger, it merely closes the contacts page. Like WLM you have to close the program by right-clicking the icon in the system tray and selecting 'Exit'
You can have Yahoo Mail and Messenger ( or any other progam ) open at the same time as long as your status is "Offline" in Yahoo Mail. Use the drop-box next to your name and "Sign out of chat"
Your online contacts will vacate the inbox until you make yourself "Available" again.
If you feel that your account is being used - Exit all Yahoo applications - type your Username in here and hit 'GO'

Yahoo sayi been sign out because i sign in on a different computer or device


Thats happens for exactly two reasons
1. (the most common) when u are Online on Yahoo Messenger and you are checking your email in a browser.
2. Someone else uses your id and password to log on to your account.

If that happens try to change your YM password, and be very carefull where u are using the account. Never check the box "Remember my id and password ", do not log on on unsecure/unknown PC. ( some hacking software may be installed on unknown/unsecure PC like keylogger who hunts for any accounts logged on the victim PC)

My yahoo messenger account has been locked


Do you have windows vista?
Yahoo messenger 9, is BETA and very buggy.. Uninstall this program.
Then
Find and install an older version of messenger. Yahoo messenger 8.1 will work.

http://www.soft32.com/download_30.html

Another big problem is with the latest update for Flash Player
Flash player 10 Does have conflicts and is causing things to not load or just crash upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # 9.0.124.0 . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel, then download the older version.
