1 person says this answers the question: Hey kengsim,

Can you check some file type associations for me?

1. Open My Computer or Windows Explorer.
2. Click on the Tools menu, then choose Folder Options.
3. Go to the File Types tab, look for URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol. Does it appear that it's selected to FF? If not, highlight it. Click Advanced.
4. In the Actions box, click Open > Edit > Browse. Then find FF and click OK.

You might also need to do the above for:
URL:HyperText Transfer Protocol with Privacy
URL:File Transfer Protocol

Google Chrome and their plug-ins have not caught up to the rest of the internet world. That's why I uninstalled and and reinstalled the All-Amazing Mozilla Firefox 3!

It seems like a yahoo messenger problem.how is it that you cannot uninstall?...try to uninstall the messenger with the registry keys too.you cna do that by going to start->run->regedit.exe.Just goto find and type yahoo messenger or yim.will wait for your comments.Also try setting google chrome as your default web browser, then try cliking on the links.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the problem would seem to be on "file association", telling Windows which application is capable of opening those files. The fastest would be to re-install the browser that you are using after Google Chrome.

Alternately, you can manually associate each filer using their extension using Folder Options, File Types, and manually Change then to be opened by your current browser.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like you have some sort of virus checker running that will not allow the web links to download. On the bottom right hand side of your computer should be an icon for Virus checker. Open it and see if pop-up blocker is checked. If so you can temporarily disable it on the toolbar between your screen and the first toolbar at the top of the screen. RIght click on each toolbar on top of the screen to see if you can find it.

Oh ok i see the reason. if you still have internet explorer on your computer and that is what you want to use just clck on tools then internet to options then go to programs. In the lowest part is a checkbox to have internet explorer check if its the default browser. Then clck ok all the way out. Close and open internet explorer then once prompted select it as the default browser. The links should work now.

When i signin to yahoo messenger i get a mail notification and when i click on it, it says ' window cannot find - http:/ login.yahoo.com/config/reset/ and bla bla.


Hi Ragaikaras,

Try reinstalling Google chrome to the latest version and try Logging in with Yahoo again.
if the problem persists, try updating your PC to the latest updates and reinstall google chrome once again.

try logging with another browser ( eg. Opera Browser, Internet Explorer, Mozilla firefox ) if the other browsers do not work then try using the Yahoo Messenger and try accessing your email from there.
i hope this helps, good luck!

It is due to some of the unwanted cookies being harassing you. Just open Google Chrome and delete all the cookies by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Delete or just do the disk cleanup of your pc and then login.
Thats all.

I've never used Google Chrome but believe if you uninstall Yahoo Messenger. Then re-download and reinstall it(Yahoo Messenger) that it should remedy your problem since Google Chrome is now removed.
