SOURCE: the dialogue box on yahoo messenger does not show messages

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

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

SOURCE: Yahoo messenger.exe - application error

1. Reboot your computer.
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del on your keyboard. This will bring up the Windows Security window. Click the "Task Manager" button and then click the "Task Manager" tab.
3. You will see a list of files/applications. These are the applications running in the background on your system, whether they show on your taskbar or not. Any one of these applications could be causing a conflict with the Yahoo! Messenger installation.
4. Click the top item on the list to highlight it. Then hold the "Shift" key down and click the last item on the list. This should highlight the whole list.
5. Click the "End Task" button. This will temporarily close all background applications on your system.
6. Click the "X" in the upper right corner to close the Task Manager window.
7. Install Yahoo! Messenger. You should not experience the same issue that you had before.
8. After Yahoo! Messenger is installed,run registry cleaner reginout also reboot your system. All other background applications will return to their original configurations.

SOURCE: In yahoo messenger in chat

Try to follow these few steps, & you should be okay =)
1) Go to "Run". You can click the start bar, then type "run" in the search bar, the application should pop-up right after that.
2) In the "Run" interface, type "regedit", & a window says "Registry Editor" should come out after that.
3) Okay, now pay attention because this is where we get the tricks done. In the "Registry Editor" panel, look for "HKEY_CURRENT_USER". Expand it.
4) From there (expanded HKEY_CURRENT_USER) & now on, expand all the way according to these order: --> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows --> CurrentVersion --> Internet Settings --> Zones.
5) In "Zones", there should be consist ONLY with "0,1,2,3,4" accordingly. Anything besides those numbers, DELETE it. Close the "Registry Editor".
6) Now you can try opening your YM. & tadaaaa!... It's back to normal.

No sound from audables

If you want to activate the sounds for your audibles follow this link

There are instances that audibles will not function because you have no flash player install in your computer. If you wanted to use your audibles and see all its features then install flash player. Save this file and install it.
Adobe Flash Player

Let me know if your audibles did make a sound every time you receive and send messages. Please comeback and give me some ratings. Thank You for using Fixya.

When using yahoo messenger, why doesn't anything I send or receive in an instant message get displayed?

this could happen if you have the latest version of ym on your computer and the one you're sending messages to has the old version, make sure both of you are using the latest version of ym

Yahoo messenger

That happened to me when I was on dial up so painstakingly I uninstall the whole lot and then started again. I reinstalled Yahoo messenger 8.1 and it took over and hour to do the install but it paid off. All the extras ie; audibles all worked again and this time guess what it came with all the new audibles included were Chinese and Indian(hindu) audibles not that I would use them I suppose but who knows who might come to dinner and use MY yahoo!!!....good luck pal. OH yeah in case your interested yahoo have a web page now that you can log into anywhere in the world with your yahoo ID without having to download anything just try it go here
