CAN’T SEE TEXT IN INSTANT MESSAGES?
This is an issue that is cropping up more and more. If just a new problem try exiting Yahoo Messenger and then relaunching it. Even try rebooting your computer. If both those fail to solve your problem then try the suggestions below.

1) 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: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

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. Here is link from Microsoft to update that:
http://www.microsoft.com/Downloads/detai...
Or you can do an internet search for Windows Script 5.7 and choose the Microsoft link.

This version of Window Script is already included with Vista so you would not use that link. There is also a Windows Script 5.7 released for Windows 2000 and you can find that here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/detai...

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:

http://messenger.yahoo.com/platform/win

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.

TO IM SOMEONE:

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".

My boss aske me to find out why yahoo messanger will not display the text he types in the main chat window or the text he receves however it is displaying the partial part when he receves the messag in a...


The wider window provides a list of very person on the chat also known as a general lobby area. The general chat area allows to participate on several issues in common with every person on the chat. However chats may be requested on separate windows usually a smaller page for reasons of fitting on the computer screen while general chat is in session. Also, the small chat window is symbolic as easily recognisable as a private conference area.

What is live messanger?


It is an instant messaging chat program like AOL instant messenger, or Yahoo messenger, or ICQ. It can safely be turned off or deleted completely. I actually think that Yahoo messenger is a better program and can chat with many more different programs.
