Normal 0 See section B. Yahoo in the info below. Try installing Skype and it's much better for Chatting with Family and Friends.

Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video should work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

When I log on, it says ... "An error occurred while trying to access the socialview plug in" Then it freezes!?!? Can u help?


I can only guess that you have a Social View plug-in installed and now its corrupt. You cannot load Yahoo Messenger to access the plug-in Manager?

This would mean uninstalling all traces of Yahoo Messenger from your C drive and Registry

Close all other programs while uninstalling, downloading and uploading
Save your Profile folder to CD if you wish to retain your Message Archives
Download Revo - double click on Yahoo Messenger - Use the 'Advanced' mode - Revo will make a Restore Point and then uninstall Messenger using the Messenger uninstall software.
It will then scan your C drive and Registry for all fragments and files that failed to uninstall.
Delete everything it finds
http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html

Download 'ccleaner' and run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Analyze' control. This will offer up all the old files in your browser - Clean them all using the 'Run Cleaner' control.
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes before repairing

Re-start your computer

Download Yahoo Messenger from here.

Not able to log on to yahoo messenger


Your settings may be set up wrong. You can find out how to change your connection info at: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng…
Be sure you have the latest Macromedia Flash Player installed. http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/…
You might have a corrupt file in your Yahoo! Messenger directory. To fix the problem, you must manually delete the "Messenger" directory on your C: drive (default), then reinstall the Yahoo! Messenger application. Read about it at: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng…
Sometimes you may have an accounts locked or invalid cookies error, log in on the yahoo home page and try to launch messenger again.
Clearing your cache, or browsing history works in some instances…go to your tools and internet options.
For Internet Explorer 6 and 7 you may want to start by going to Internet Options and restoring everything to default. Make sure you are set to Internet and not Intranet.
If you are using firewall then off its protection from the control panel.
After this your problem will be fixed


Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time

I tried my best to down load yahoo messenger latest version but installation is failed.please resolve this issue.i will be waiting for your reply.


there are different reasons why you can't install yahoo messenger. First if your files is corrupted it will be impossible to finish installing. Second you need good internet connection, if the connection is unstable, i will take too long to respond from yahoo. Last, is firewall connection, better disable this when installing yahoo messenger.

Here is a better file to download, Ymsgr 10.

Thank you for using fixya.
