Good Day Dr_Mosaeed!

I know how hard it feels when you want to communicate with others using Yahoo! Messenger and you can not because the message you type will not appear on chat window. And even the message that your friend send to you will not appear.

Dr, this problem is usually caused by an Internet Explorer glitch that block the execution of the scripts in Yahoo Messenger.

You can fix the error by enabling the scripts in Internet Explorer.

Here is what you must do to repair the problem and to assure that it will not appear again:

First, download the latest Internet Explorer version 8 and install in your computer.
To download, go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home - choose the operating system you are using before hitting the Download button. Once downloaded, run the application to install Internet Explorer version 8. Once completely installed, run the Internet Explorer.

Secondly, enable the scripts in the Internet Explorer.
While Internet Explorer is running, press the Tools menu and navigate to select Internet Options.
When an Internet Options window appears, select on Security tab. Click on the Internet Globe icon and press Custom Level... button.
When Security Settings - Internet Zone window appears, scroll down and navigate to ActiveX controls and plug-ins and Scripting.
Make sure
the following is enable:
Under ActiveX controls and plug-ins
* Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting - enable
Under Scripting
* Active scripting
- enable
* Scripting of Java applets - enable
Once it is enable, press the OK button. Press Apply button and hit OK. Close the Internet Explorer.

Lastly, if your Yahoo Messenger is running, you must restart it. Please, you do not need to reboot your computer.
Then, try opening a chat window and type a few words before hitting Enter. See if your message finally appear.



Hope this fix will solve your problem. If not, just leave a message here and will try a thorough analysis with your chat message problem.

If this will fix your problem, please do not forget to rate my answer. A simple press on the YES button will show your appreciation.

Thank you for asking Fixya.

I can't see the messanges that i am typing to my friends


Sounds like you have a problem with your Messenger support software. This software is required to allow the Messenger program to function and is NOT downloaded with Messenger.

Check you have scripting enabled in Internet explorer
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK

Still not working ? Update software

use the links on this page to help update software.

After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts
Start / control panel / programs
delete any old versions

Yahoo Messenger doesn't display text when i write and receive text in IM my OS is : windows 7 32bit


Sounds like you have lost some support software during the upgrade ( not downloaded with Messenger but essential to operate it ) - check your settings first
You may have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.
To enable scripting:

Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
Restart IE

Then go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ find the yahoo folder then delete it. and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ find the yahoo folder then delete it.

Run search>>>All files and folders Type YAHOO in "all or part of the file name:" lock in your local hardrive>>choose more advance option check the search for hidden files. Delete all files of yahoo.

uninstall your internet explorer. go to RegEdit >>> HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ then delete the zone folder. Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ then delete the zone folder.

Download Registry Cleaner to clean up your registry. Restart your computer.

Why yahoo messenger messages sent and received does not appear to dialogue box?


The problem is probably with the support software that drives Messenger - this is not downloaded with Yahoo Messenger but installed on your computer. Check your IE settings first
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK

I already tried a new accnt but still my messages disappear when i press enter to send


This error is most likely from yahoo. Their system has been acting up recently. Try using their messenger for the web instead. www.messenger.yahoo.com/web

I downloaded messenger 9.0 and everything works but my im when i send an im to sumone i can see what i sent or what they said in reply whats wrong with it i uninstalled it and reinstalled a couple times


The problem is you probably had a program running when you uninstalled Messenger and its uninstalled some of the support software - This is stand alone software and not included in the Messenger download - Hence, a re-install failed to resolve it.
Check IE settings first
Click "Tools"
Click "Internet Options."
Click "Security" tab.
Click "Custom Level" button.
Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable
Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable
Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable
Click OK
Click OK
