Download Yahoo messenger again, but save it as a file first. Then install it from the saved file. I had the same problem on my XP SP3 Home edition

While iam in aconversation on the messenger i recieved a massege.


It is a common thing on any computer program that it stops reacting, usually by lag, meaning by opening a major program while on yahoo, or just by a failure. What you do is you just reboot yahoo messenger (by start > programs > ... > yahoo messenger) and you're back up. reinstalling won't help, since it's your computer.

I'm sure you won't get it often, it's a common problem, it sometimes happens to other programs too. If it happens again, just restart it. It can be restarted in a sec.

Yahoo messenger 10 crashes


Are you using the Windows Blinds program? This is a Windows OS skinning program, and there is a conflict between it and yahoo messenger. There is a simple fix for this. Exit Yahoo Messenger by right clicking Yahoo icon by your clock and choosing Exit. Then right click the Yahoo Messenger shortcut on your desktop and choose Properties. Click the Compatibility Tab, and check the box that says Disable Visual Themes. Click OK. Restart Yahoo Messenger.
If the above does not apply to you then be sure to exit yahoo messenger first, by right clicking the yahoo icon by your clock and choosing exit, before you do the following steps:First, clear out your yahoo cache. My Computer/ C: drive/Program Files/Yahoo/Messenger/Cache. You can delete everything in the cache folder. I am not sure of the path for Windows Vista.
Next thing to try is to change your connection settings. Go to top of YM and click on Messenger and then Preferences. Go to the Connections page and try these options, no proxies or no network detection (try one than the other). Click OK after choosing one. Yahoo Messenger will need to close to change the settings.
Do you have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed? The latest version is 10.0.22.87. If you do update this also you can uncheck the box for Google toolbar that is on the download page, it is totally optional. After the installation box pops up, close all browser windows before installing. Important: Yahoo Messenger relies on Internet Explorer so be sure that when you update Adobe Flash Player that you do it in Internet Explorer. If you also use Firefox you will also eventually want to run this same page in Firefox and check your Adobe Flash Player version but the one that matters for Yahoo is Internet Explorer.
Do you have the latest Sun Java? The latest version is Version 6 Update 14.After you install the newest sun java uninstall the old ones through add/remove programs. Well I hope something here is of help to you. Please remember to choose a best answer and give feedback. I would also love to hear which of these solutions, if any helped you.

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.

Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change nickname


Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY/CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
