Yahoo messenger 10 crashes
Are you using the Windows Blinds program? This is a Windows OS skinning program, and there is a conflict between it and yahoo messenger. There is a simple fix for this. Exit Yahoo Messenger by right clicking Yahoo icon by your clock and choosing Exit. Then right click the Yahoo Messenger shortcut on your desktop and choose Properties. Click the Compatibility Tab, and check the box that says Disable Visual Themes. Click OK. Restart Yahoo Messenger.
If the above does not apply to you then be sure to exit yahoo messenger first, by right clicking the yahoo icon by your clock and choosing exit, before you do the following steps:First, clear out your yahoo cache. My Computer/ C: drive/Program Files/Yahoo/Messenger/Cache. You can delete everything in the cache folder. I am not sure of the path for Windows Vista.
Next thing to try is to change your connection settings. Go to top of YM and click on Messenger and then Preferences. Go to the Connections page and try these options, no proxies or no network detection (try one than the other). Click OK after choosing one. Yahoo Messenger will need to close to change the settings.
Do you have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed? The latest version is 10.0.22.87. If you do update this also you can uncheck the box for Google toolbar that is on the download page, it is totally optional. After the installation box pops up, close all browser windows before installing. Important: Yahoo Messenger relies on Internet Explorer so be sure that when you update Adobe Flash Player that you do it in Internet Explorer. If you also use Firefox you will also eventually want to run this same page in Firefox and check your Adobe Flash Player version but the one that matters for Yahoo is Internet Explorer.
Do you have the latest Sun Java? The latest version is Version 6 Update 14.After you install the newest sun java uninstall the old ones through add/remove programs.
Well I hope something here is of help to you. Please remember to choose a best answer and give feedback. I would also love to hear which of these solutions, if any helped you.
