I need your help to access my facebook page.

Point your web browser at

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the down-pointing triangle in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

If you're getting an error message, what does it say?

I can see what I type in the dialog box but after I press ENTER it does not show anything in the texting box (same with people typing back to me). It stays completely blank. I even tried sending...

Okay, here you go - Try this...:
Go to Start - Run - regsvr32 jscript.dll - OK
and then...
Start - Run - regsvr32 vbscript.dll - OK
It should work.


You may not have Internet Explorer as your default browser but it is coded with Yahoo Messenger
For this reason you must keep it up to date and the support software as well. You do not have to set it as default but you need to keep it clean.
Flashplayer FOR IE
Sun Java runtime
Check out the Yahoo Messenger Scripting Help page Browse the section for your problem and your OS and click on the link
note. There are 2 pages of links - click 'next' at the bottom of the first selection to view the second page

To enable scripting:Internet Explorer8

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

Finally make sure you clean your browsers on a regular basis
Download 'ccleaner' and use it daily. Run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Analyze' control to view the files offered for deletion - Use the 'Run Cleaner control to delete them.
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information.

Why won't IM let me sign in? It keeps going to sleep

I would like to help you with your issue. but we have to check the following first try log into the Web Messenger

> Step 1: Test Your Internet Connection
> Step 2: Verify Your Yahoo! ID and Password
Open Internet explorer and
Check by sign in to you account
> Step 3: Test Your Access to Secure Pages
Make sure that you can access secure pages from Internet Explorer
Try to sign in to Yahoo! by going to the Yahoo! sign in page and enter the same Yahoo! ID and password you were using before.
> Step 4: Verify Credentials
Verify that the same Yahoo! ID and password you used before in the last step also works in the online version of Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger for the Web:
enter the same Yahoo! ID and password you were using before.
> Step 5: Check Connection Settings
Click the Messenger menu and select Connection Preferences.
Click Connect directly to the Internet, and then click OK.

Check by Changing the connection type to a connection via a proxy server:
Click the Messenger menu and select Connection Preferences.
Click Connect via a proxy server, then under this option, select HTTP proxy, and then click OK.

Last is Uninstall all the Yahoo Tool Bars and Yahoo applications , Yahoo Messenger, and Yahoo Updates from Program list i.e Control panel - Add/Rem Programs ..
And reinstall the Yahoo Messenger again -

Hoping the above info will be useful for you

Still not working ? Update software

Clean up your browser first - download ccleaner and run it through include "registry" from left hand toolbar - do not feel nervous about deleting so many files.

use the links on this page to help update software.

You can check what software you have loaded by using revo. Although its an uninstall tool it has a very good opening page which shows you just what software is on your computer

After updating your software use revo to make sure you do not have 2 versions of the same program installed and creating conflicts. For example, if you have Flashplayer9 and Flashplayer10 installed - uninstall Flash9

When downloading the free software from filehippo use the green arrow to start downloads - avoid the ads.
