My Yahoo messenger started to malfunction this morning. I am getting an internet explorerer error message. When I type text, hitting the "enter" key no longer works. When I hit the send button, my text does not display in the upper panel. I can hear other users are trying to contact me via the "tinkerbell" alert, but their text does not appear on the upper panel

You need to enable scripting:

Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."

Click the "Security" tab.

Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.

Scroll down to "Scripting."

Enable the following:

* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled

Click the OK button at the bottom of the window.

Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.

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 cant see any text in my chat board


Some virus can cause this bug in Yahoo Messenger. Check your Internet Options, go to Security Tab, and see if there is a new item. Normal items there are Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted sites, and Restricted sites. If you see a new item, chances are you were hit by a virus.

To resolve this, open a registry editor (click Start, click Run. On the Open box, type: regedit and then press Enter). Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Windows CurrentVersion Internet Settings Zones

There should only be 5 items there, numbered 0 to 4. If you see a different one, especially if you see items that shows up as box, try deleting it. (Backup your registry first). If you were able to delete that extra item, this might fix the bug, and you will be able to see the chat messages again in yahoo messenger.

If it does not work, try registering the dlls for scripting. To do this:

Click Start, then click Run. type in the open box:

regsvr32 vbscript.dll

and then press Enter or click OK.

Next, click Start, then click Run. Type in the open box:

regsvr32 jscript.dll

and then press Enter or click OK.

Cannot see incoming or outgoing messages


When you send or receive an instant message and no message appears, you probably have scripting disabled in your Internet Explorer.

To enable scripting:

1. Click the "Tools" menu on your Internet Explorer toolbar and select "Internet Options."
2. Click the "Security" tab.
3. Click the Internet (globe) icon and click the "Custom Level" button.
4. Scroll down to "Scripting."
5. Enable the following:
* Active scripting
* Allow paste operations via script
* Scripting of Java applets are all enabled
6. Click the "OK" button at the bottom of the window.

Note: Restart Yahoo! Messenger and you should start seeing text in your IM windows again.
Where's the Contact Customer Care button? With so many improvements to Messenger since the version you're using (lots more features and reliability), we figured you're ready to move up. So get your upgrade and with the new version, rest assured if you have questions, you’ll find that friendly button on its help pages.
