Y! IM or Yahoo Messenger is my personal favorite. I've had an account with Yahoo in some form now for roughly a decade and I just love their service! 

http://messenger.yahoo.com/download/

Click the link that says DOWNLOAD NOW it will be the newest relase 9.0.0.???? During the installation process you will be asked if you want to do the typical or a custom installation. Fear not it's not hard so click the blue hyperlink that says custom installation and UNCHECK every box EXCEPT create DESKTOP SHORTCUT. You don't want Yahoo installing toolbars and shortcuts all over your system. They're not needed and can clutter up even the best system. :)

Once the installation is finished you will be asked if you want to run Y! IM. If you don't already have a Yahoo account:

https://login.yahoo.com/config/mail?.intl=us

3/4 the way down the page on the right hand side there is a SIGN UP link. :)

Best of luck!

I want to register yahoo messenger


You can use a Yahoo! ID to access all things Yahoo!--including email, games and the Yahoo! Messenger instant messenging service. If you already have a Yahoo! email account, you do not have to create a new ID to use Messenger. To create a new Yahoo! ID, you use the same process as creating a new email address, because your Yahoo! Messenger ID is your Yahoo! email account.

1.Open your web browser and navigate to the Yahoo! home page (see Resources).

2.Click "Sign Up" at the top of the site.

3.Fill out the sign-up form. You will need to supply your name and some other personal information, as well as create an ID, password and security questions. For security reasons, you also need to type in a code at the bottom of the form.

4.Click "Create Account" when ready.

5.Sign in to Yahoo! Messenger using the ID and password you just created.

Hi I tried to download a new version of Instant Messenger and I got a bad message . Help My program and address book are gone. What do I do.


You can try restoring your pc to a time before you tried to download the new version and this will restore your address book and program. To restore your pc, click on start and go to accessories then find system tools and slide over to "system restore" and click on it. Follow the prompts and choose a date before the installation of the updated yahoo messenger and click next to start the restoration process. When it is finished, it will restart your pc automatically and that should solve your issue.

My messenger just stop from working i uninstall it and instal the new one but i just can get it to work help please


Uninstall Yahoo Messenger! using this program >click HERE .
Before starting to uninstall Yahoo messenger be sure that it is not running. So check your taskbar at the bottom of your screen and near to your system clock, right click on its icon and select "Exit". Then select the program and start the "Uninstall" command. Uninstall process with Revo Uninstaller Pro starts the uninstalling wizard, which shows you what is happening on every step of the uninstalling procedure. During the uninstall Revo Uninstaller Pro tries to run the built-in uninstaller of the uninstalled program, if it works properly let it to do its job, but if it is not working properly here you will see an error message that you will have to skip ( ignore ). Then select an uninstall mode and press "Scan" button to continue further to the next step of the wizard. After the scanning completes you will see the leftover Registry items, files and folders, review, verify and delete them.
After you uninstall Yahoo Messenger ..install the latest version from Yahoo Site->http://xp.yimg.com/gj/msgr/11/suitega2/msgr11us.exe

I need multi yahoo Messenger


Click this link and click "Download (65KB)" to download. Once it's downloaded, run the program by double-clicking the file and follow the onscreen instructions. You will receive a confirmation message "Done" when it's applied. Before you run this, please close the Yahoo Messenger (also quit the yahoo messenger icon from the taskbar.)..
You can also do this from the Registry Editor. But the process is more or less similar and the above trick is much faster.
If you wish to learn how to do it from the Registry Editor, follow the steps:
1. Go to Start, then Run . Type regedit, then enter .
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then open "Software" folder, then "yahoo" followed by "pager" and "Test"
3. On the right pane , right-click (on empty area) and choose new Dword value .
4. Rename it as Plural.
5. Double click and assign a decimal value of 1.
6. Close by clicking "Ok".
Now check whether you can login multiple accounts or not.
Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
